There Is No ‘Right to Die’, Says Lawyer of Belgian Man Contesting Healthy Mother’s Euthanasia

July 28, 2020

(Christianity Today) – The final legal arguments have been submitted to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) on behalf of a Belgian man contesting the euthanasia of his mother in 2012. Godelieva de Troyer, 64, suffered depression but was physical healthy when she was euthanized by lethal injection. Her son, Tom Mortier, did not find out about her decision until the day after she had been euthanized, when he was informed that she had “untreatable depression”.
