Netherlands: Teenage girl stops eating and drinking in order to die after being raped

Noa Pothoven, a 17-year-old Dutch girl stopped eating and drinking in order to die, after years of depression and the other conditions she was suffering from.

The teenager ended up suffering from anxiety, depression and anorexia after she was raped and sexually abused when she was just 11 years old.

Pothoven died at home in Arnhem after she refused to eat and drink anything. Her family said that at last, Noa is at rest and has found peace.

Noa used to speak openly about her depression and even wrote a book about her experience, however she said she could not keep living her life like this as she always felt “dirty” and “stained” after what she went had been through.

International reports initially stated that she had died by euthanasia, however friends of the teenager said this was not true and that she had decided to put a stop to her own suffering by not eating and drinking. Last December, Noa told a certain newspaper that the previous year she had spoken to a clinic in order to be administered euthanasia however the clinic told her she was too young.
