So Sad! Deaf Twins Pick Euthanasia Over Going Blind

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadFamilyWomb For Two

This is some serious brotherly love.

Deaf twin brothers Marc and Eddy Verbessem were so frightened about becoming blind, they decided to undergo euthanasia to end their lives simultaneously.

The two 45-year-olds, worked as cobblers in Belgium for most of their natural lives, but were doomed to both become blind by a genetic form of glaucoma.

Neither of them could bear the thought of not seeing each other so they made a decision together to undergo euthanasia, a controversial treatment that Belgium legalized in 2002.
