Anyone who understands logic could see this kind of thing coming, but it’s still a shock. A Belgian transsexual woman chose to be euthanized, which is to say, killed by a doctor, when her operation didn’t work out. From the Daily Mail story Wesley Smith reports:
Nathan Verhelst, 44, died yesterday afternoon after being allowed have his life ended on the grounds of ‘unbearable psychological suffering.’ . . .
In the hours before his death he told Belgium’s Het Laatse Nieuws: ‘I was ready to celebrate my new birth. But when I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted with myself. ‘My new breasts did not match my expectations and my new penis had symptoms of rejection. I do not want to be . . . a monster.’
The article reports that “His family learned of his decision this morning via a farewell letter.” This is desperately sad.
