And now, euthanasia for obsessive cleaning May 16, 2016

The Netherlands has extended its legalized euthanasia program to include people with mental and emotional problems.  Victims of sexual abuse are now being euthanized, as is at least one woman with a obsessive compulsion to clean.

From Dutch euthanasia extends to woman being killed by doctors for cleaning obsession | Daily Mail Online:

She is a conventional mother who enjoys life with her two children and husband in a farming town 100 miles away from Holland’s razzmatazz capital of Amsterdam.

The 40-year-old’s gentle lifestyle could not be further removed from the euthanasia industry which has given Holland a notorious reputation all over the world. The latest figures show that last year 5,516 Dutch people — including children — were legally killed by lethal injection administered by doctors trained to do the task with rapid efficiency.
