Deaf twins euthanized in Belgium

Deaf twins in Belgium were euthanized after the deaf twins were told they are going blind and would not be able to see each other again.

ABC News reports that the men, Marc and Eddy Verbessem, who were 45-years-old, were legally put to death by lethal injection at the Brussels University Hospital on Dec. 14.

More than 1,000 people legally availed themselves of doctor-assisted deaths in Belgium in 2011, most of them were terminally ill cancer patients.

“They were very happy. It was a relief to see the end of their suffering,” said Dr. David Dufour.

“They had a cup of coffee in the hall. It went well and a rich conversation. Then the separation from their parents and brother was very serene and beautiful,” he said. “At the last there was a little wave of their hands and then they were gone.”
