The following excerpt is from the article “Paying the price for their autonomy” by Tom Mortier on the MercatorNet website: “… Last Monday afternoon the victim of a botched sex reassignment surgery was euthanased by the country’s [Belgium] leading euthanasia doctor, Wim Distelmans. Cameramen from a local TV station filmed the lethal injection.”

“Forty-four-year-old Nathan Verhelst was born as Nancy Verhelst into a family which despised girls. ‘When I saw ‘Nancy’ for the first time, my dream was shattered,’ her mother told the Het Laatste Nieuws newspaper. ‘She was so ugly. I had a phantom birth. Her death does not bother me.’ … Nathan’s solution was to seek euthanasia. …”

The Telegraph has published two articles on this tragic death.
