Chilean Girl with Illness Changes Mind about Euthanasia

(Yahoo!) – An ailing Chilean girl who made a public plea for permission to end her life has had a change of heart, according to her father. Fredy Maureira told The Associated Press on Sunday that his 14-year-old, daughter, Valentina, has changed her mind after meeting people who responded to her plea to be euthanized in order to end her suffering from cystic fibrosis.
