Child abuse victim given lethal injection

"A victim of child sex abuse has been allowed to end her life after doctors decided her mental disorder was incurable, it's been reported."

"The woman, in her twenties, was molested between the ages of five and 15 and had been suffering with post-traumatic stress since the abuse began."

"She underwent 'intensive therapy ' and though her psychological condition improved, doctors in the Netherlands decided to accept her request to die, the Daily Mail reported."

"The woman, who has not been named, suffered from severe anorexia, chronic depression, suicidal mood swings, self-harming, hallucinations, obsessions and compulsions, according to papers released by the Dutch Euthanasia Commission."

"Her condition had left her almost entirely bedridden and her psychiatrist said `there was no prospect or hope for her`, describing her suffering as `unbearable`."

"A final medical report approved the `termination of life` order and the woman was given a lethal injection of drugs last year, the report said."

"The papers reportedly concluded that the woman had been `totally competent` in making her decision and there was `no major depression or other mood disorder which affected her thinking`."
