Rape Victim, 17, Ends Her Own Life Through Legal Euthanasia

A 17-year-old girl who was raped as a young child has been helped to die at her home after her suffering became “unbearable.”

Noa Pothoven died on Sunday in an “end-of-life clinic” bed in her living room in the Netherlands after battling mental health problems for years and deciding to refuse food.

The teenager from Arnhem decided to end her own life after sexual assaults and rapes as a small girl led her to develop post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anorexia.

She was attacked three times as a youngster.

The first two incidents were molestations when she attended children's parties aged 11 and 12 before she was raped by two men when she was 14 in the Elderveld neighbourhood of the city.

For years she never revealed the horrific abuse because it left her feeling ashamed, the 17-year-old said.

Last year, Noa said that she had reported the attacks to police saying she hoped the men will one day be arrested.

She told the Gelderlander in December that she at one point contacted the Life End Clinic in The Hague without telling her loved ones to discuss euthanasia.

“I have quit eating and drinking for a while now, and after many discussions and evaluations, it was decided to let me go because my suffering is unbearable.”

She added that while she was “alive” she felt as if she was merely surviving, writing: “I breathe, but I no longer live.”

The Dutch teen asked her friends to “'not convince me that this is not good, this is my decision and it is final.

"Love is letting go, in this case.”

She said her mother Lisette had "always been there for me" - however according to Dutch law, her mum did not have a say in her daughter's decision.

Noa had penned an award winning autobiography called Winning or Learning which detailed her struggles with mental health including suicide attempts.

She said she wanted the book to help vulnerable children in Holland as the country does not have specialised clinics where youngsters can be treated for psychological or physical trauma.

Last year, she revealed that she had been admitted to hospital in a critical condition after her anorexia had left her organs on the brink of failure.

Doctors placed her into a medically-induced coma to feed her through tubes.

Dutch minister Lisa Westerveld, who first made contact with Noa in December after her newspaper interview, visited the 17-year-old before she was euthanised.

She said: "It was nice to see her again. It is also very unreal. Noa was incredibly strong and very open. I will never forget her. We will continue her struggle. "

According to Dutch law, euthanasia is legal as long as it is performed in accordance with the strict standards described in the 'Termination of Life on Request and Assisted Suicide (Review Procedures) Act' which was passed in parliament in 2001 and became law in 2002.

Kids as young as 12 can be euthanized in the Netherlands but only after a doctor agrees that their suffering it unbearable with no clear resolution in sight.

Euthanasia is still illegal in the UK but is legal in parts of the US, Canada and Belgium.

British patients wishing to die have travelled to Dignitas - a non-profit society in Switzerland which provides assisted or accompanied suicide to its members, provided their wishes are signed off by independent doctors.

Since 1998, nearly 350 Britons have ended their lives at the Swiss clinic, according to the Campaign for Dignity in Dying.

Re: Rape Victim, 17, Ends Her Own Life Through Legal Euthanasia

i digged in deeper and like often a lot of media got it wrong (on purpose or ignorance or just copying text from eachother imo).

Quote:
A severely ill Dutch girl widely reported by international media as having been “legally euthanised” in a clinic in the Netherlands died at home, apparently after voluntarily refusing to eat or drink and with no evidence that her death was assisted.

Noa Pothoven, 17, who for several years had been treated in multiple institutions for severe depression and anorexia, and had made previous attempts to kill herself, died at her parents’ home in Arnhem on 2 June, local media reported.

Media organisations from Australia to Britain reported it as a case of “legal euthanasia” performed by a Dutch “end-of-life clinic”, and Noa’s name was trending on social media on Tuesday in countries including Italy, where the story was front-page news.

In fact, it is unclear how she died. No official cause of death has so far been given and there is no evidence the case involved either euthanasia or assisted suicide, both of which are legal in the Netherlands subject to strict conditions.

Noa told de Gelderlander newspaper in an interview in December that she had approached a clinic in The Hague the previous year to ask if she could be considered for euthanasia or assisted suicide, but was told she could not.

Dealing with mental health issue sucks. It can ruin your life if you don’t get help.

Help isn't always effective either. I hope she's found peace and happiness at last in the afterlife.

Unfortunately, I think you're right From what I gather, some mental health professionals are very naive and narrow-minded, hence can probably do more harm than good when dealing with traumatized people. Not all, of course, but way too many and the subject seems to be kinda taboo.

I, too, hope the afterlife is far gentler to her. RIP Noa.

She was a rape victim at 11 and then at 14, had major depression and ptsd, and she starved herself to death, at home, to end her suffering. Her choice.
