Parents who have been spending 22 years caring for their severely impaired only child ask to euthanize him

  • A mother of a boy born with cerebral palsy and persistent convulsion is asking to euthanize his only child.

    The woman and her husband, who is the father to the boy, have spent the last 22 years at home to take care of him. They cannot leave the house and they cannot go out with him, either. They are old and worried about the quality of life and the future of their child once they will pass.


    I am wondering if he can't be medicated and institutionalized. Euthanasia seems a little too brutal.

    POSADAS. Una gran conmoción causó en la provincia de Misiones el pedido desesperado de Eva Briñócoli, una mujer que pide la eutanasia para su único hijo de 22 años, quien padece parálisis cerebral y convulsiones recurrentes.

    "Adrián nació así, con parálisis cerebral y crisis convulsivas. Fuimos a Buenos Aires, estuvo en el Hospital Garrahan, lo medicaron bien, pero no se pudo hacer nada y no hay ninguna esperanza de mejora, así que pedimos terminar con su sufrimiento y que descanse", explicó Briñócoli en una entrevista con el canal 12 de Misiones.
