Dutch Teen Requests Euthanasia After Being Sexually Abused At 11 & Raped At 14
While she requested to end her life by legal euthanasia, a 17-year-old Dutch girl passed away on Sunday (June 2), instead by starvation; this following her struggle with mental illness caused by being sexually abused at 11 and 12, then raped at 14.
Additionally, the teenager, Noa Pothoven, wrote a book, ‘Winning and Learning,’ of her struggles and made note of her request to end her life by legal euthanization in the Netherlands, which doctors denied, claiming, “she’s too young.”
Ultimately, she passed by refusing to consumed, water, or anything to keep her alive. In addition to her mental illness, the teen suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anorexia following her cases of sexual abuse and assault.
