Man Allows Doctors End His Life After His Sex-Change Operation Turned Him Into A 'Monster'

44 years old Belgian transsexual Nathan Verhelst, chose to die yesterday by euthanasia after a botched sex change operation to complete his transformation from a woman into a man left him a 'monster'.

He allowed doctors to inject him with a lethal injection which killed him, on the grounds of
'unbearable psychological suffering'.

Born a girl named Nancy, his transformation into a man began with hormone therapy in 2009, followed by a mastectomy and finally an operation to construct a penis last year.
But the procedures did not go according to plan.

In the hours before his death he told Belgium's Het Laatse Nieuws:
I was the girl that nobody wanted. While my brothers were celebrated, I got a storage room above the garage as a bedroom. 
'If only you had been a boy', my mother complained. I was tolerated, nothing more.
'I was ready to celebrate my new birth (as a man). 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.'

His family learned of his decision this morning via a farewell letter.

Euthanasia carried out by doctors at the request of a patient is only legal in three European countries, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.

  1. His parents were the real monsters, the criminals. He only needed love. First to change sex, then euthanasia. both are disgusting.
