Belgian State Sanctioned Murder?

Murder, or state assisted suicide?
This is appalling.
"Identical twins have been killed by Belgian doctors in a unique case under the country's euthanasia laws.
The 45-year-old brothers from the Antwerp region were born deaf and
sought euthanasia after finding out that they would soon go blind. They
told doctors that they were unable to bear the thought of not being able
to see each other again.
The twins, who have not been named but have been pictured on Belgian
television, had spent their entire lives together, sharing a flat and
working as cobblers.
Belgium's Het Laatste Nieuws newspaper reported on the
weekend that doctors at Brussels University Hospital in Jette
"euthanized" the two men by lethal injection on Dec. 14.
Socialists tabled a legal amendment that will allow the euthanasia of
children and Alzheimer's sufferers. The controversial change will allow
minors and people suffering from dementia to seek permission to die."
