Woman Euthanized in Belgium Heard Screaming by Loved Ones as She Was Suffocated by Pillow

Thirty-six year old Alexina Wattiez received the devastating news that she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. In 2021, doctors told her she would not survive another year. By the spring of 2022, her health had deteriorated to the point that she chose Belgium’s controversial euthanasia program to end her life in what she hoped would be a more peaceful and less painful way to die.

Belgium legalized euthanasia in 2002. The law allows patients suffering from untreatable or unbearable physical or psychological conditions to choose to end their lives.

Newsweek shares, “Belgian law specifies that to qualify for euthanasia, the person must be in a ‘medically futile condition of constant and unbearable physical or mental suffering that cannot be alleviated, resulting from a serious and incurable disorder caused by illness or accident.’”

Unfortunately for Alexina, her death was anything but peaceful. After a cocktail of drugs failed to end her life, European media outlet Le Soir, reported that Alexina was suffocated with a pillow by nurses while her loved ones in another room heard her screams.

Le Soir reported that Alexina’s partner, Christophe Stulens, and his 15-year-old daughter Tracy were there when a doctor and two nurses came to the home to administer the euthanasia protocol.

“After a short night’s sleep, I was woken up by a nurse who told me that Alexina was doing very badly,” Stulens said. “Then the doctor took some syringes and we were asked if we wanted to say goodbye.”

Stulens and his daughter were told to wait outside, so they went onto the terrace, but what they thought would be a peaceful death quickly turned horrific: they heard screaming.

“I recognized her voice,” he said. “Afterwards we saw her lying on the bed with her eyes and mouth open.”

De Telegraph reported that an autopsy found that Wattiez died of asphyxiation, not the euthanasia drug cocktail that was meant to end her life, and that nurses took turns using a pillow to suffocate her.

From Live Action:

The drugs used in assisted suicide are often the same used for executions, and they are frequently known to fail. Additionally, while the process of dying may look peaceful, in reality, there is a serious possibility of severe pain.

As Dr. Joel Zivot, an associate professor of anesthesiology and surgery at the Emory School of Medicine, has previously explained, “The death penalty is not the same as assisted dying, of course. Executions are meant to be punishment; euthanasia is about relief from suffering. Yet for both euthanasia and executions, paralytic drugs are used. These drugs, given in high enough doses, mean that a patient cannot move a muscle, cannot express any outward or visible sign of pain. But that doesn’t mean that he or she is free from suffering.”

In fact, the lungs may fill with fluid, causing the patient to essentially drown while he or she is paralyzed.

“Advocates of assisted dying owe a duty to the public to be truthful about the details of killing and dying,” Zivot continued. “People who want to die deserve to know that they may end up drowning, not just falling asleep.”

The Gateway Pundit reported on the rising culture of death spreading throughout the world, including French president Emmanuel Macron’s work to implement a law on an ‘End of Life Model” in a move seen by his critics as a dangerous first step towards legalizing euthanasia in the country.

    I am thoroughly convinced that there are demons masquerading as health professionals walking among us.

    First off, let’s call this (‘euthanasia’), what it is – MURDER. It’s NOT assisted suicide. It’s NOT ‘euthanasia’, nor any other term you want to use to ‘whitewash’ it. IT’S MURDER! Therefore, all this wailing and gnashing of teeth over ‘cocktail’ meds and/or their potency, being used in either ‘assisted suicide'(s) or execution(s) to create the appearance of a ‘problem’ is – LUDICROUS. THERE IS NO PROBLEM. There IS a solution:

    Since ANY form of assistance in helping ANYONE commit suicide – is MURDER, and since MURDER is (still) ILLEGAL in the U.S., anyone assisting should be held accountable as such.

    Additionally, although I do not believe in murder, (of ANY circumstance) – I DO believe in the death penalty. Therefore, wrangling over words concerning the potency of ‘efficiency’ of a lethal injection should not be a problem here either. There IS a solution. A very simple solution.

    Although history has proved the death penalty to be the BEST form of deterrent for criminals, decades-long attempts by liberals have successfully homogenized prosecutorial mandates of the law to a point where they’re almost unrecognizable. Hence, the CONVICTED felon is allowed an appeals process which consists of court hearings, appearances, continuations, etc., and which elongates the timeline of execution to an average of EIGHTEEN YEARS. Again, there’s a solution for this also – and it’s NOT lethal injection.

    Solution: After 90 days of conviction, if there is no CREDIBLE and/or DIRECT evidence which can be submitted in support of the defense of the felon, he should be executed – IMMEDIATELY, BY PUBLIC HANGING.

    When does assisted suicide turn into murder?

  • James Leamons says:

    I don’t under stand the use of a pillow. Two hands around the neck would cause an old person to pass out from blood. restriction quickly, and certainly help with the “scream” problem…

    It was OK to kill babies up to full term. Their little hands and feet thrown in garbage cans by the millions. What comes around goes around. This is just another form of late-term abortion for adults. Why did the people think that once this mentality spread it would not take different forms of evolving. They just have a legal way of getting rid of the unwanted, the costly, the feeble, the bothersome, the aged, the old, legal removal.
