Colombian Victor Escobar became the first person in the Andean country with a non-terminal illness to die by legally regulated euthanasia late on Friday. Reuters reports that Escobar, who fought for two-years for his right to euthanasia in the face of opposition from doctors, clinics and courts, suffered from end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which greatly diminishes quality of life, as well as a number of other conditions. On Saturday, a second Colombian, a woman with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, was also euthanized.
