Noa Pothoven, 17, has been legally euthanised in the Netherlands, saying the pain she was dealing with after a childhood abuse was “insufferable”.

Noa wrote an autobiography called Winning or Learning, which details her battles with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anorexia after being molested and raped as a young child.

Children as young as 12 can opt for euthanasia in the Netherlands but only after a doctor determines that the patient’s pain is unbearable.

Euthanasia is also legal in some US states, Canada and Belgium.

  1. She basically did what these pro vaxxers are doing. Shooting themselves up with extremely dangerous poisons & toxins.

    • Right. I see you know better than bona fide, legitimate medical professionals and our gedolim shlita. You’re an idiot and so are the quacks you listen to. Go smoke your cigarettes and leave the rest of us alone. I’m tired of your anti vax claptrap and I’m tired of you and your equally imbecilic cronies making a chilul Hashem. How many more tragedies do we need in our community c”v before you learn to stop stirring up machlokes?

  2. This story is heartbreaking. The evil, selfish creature who assaulted this poor girl began the process of her murder and the misguided government that allowed her to be euthanized completed the process.

    Members of our own community have had their lives destroyed and been driven to suicidal thoughts and attempts by molesters. We must do all that we can to prevent this horrible crime and to help those who are its survivors.

  3. Update required:
    It has become known that the girl was not euthanized. The first reports on this got it wrong.
    In fact , she requested to be euthanized but was denied.
    She had anorexia and other mental illnesses and she starved herself to death.
    It is still very tragic.
