Many families found their children abused, bruised, having broken bones, or with their fingers and toes stuck together from lack of use. Many witnesses on the documentary complained of the smell that enveloped the facility, stating that the residents were uncared for, and thus unhygienic.
This man was left quadriplegic after a diving accident and had been bedridden for almost 30 years. He fought a losing battle with government: he never received permission for euthanasia, and in January 1998, with the help of one of his friends he took poison. Another possible reason for the justifying of euthanasia is the lack of space in hospitals for those who can be cured and saved. It is bitter to own up, but this problem exists in many countries. Those who want to live have no chance to get the proper treatment while those who want to die cannot give their place to them.
