A Catholic order in Belgium is facing a Vatican investigation after the group’s decision last month to allow euthanasia in its psychiatric hospitals.
Brothers of Charity, which works around the world with elderly and mentally ill patients, announced in March that it would permit doctors to perform euthanasia at its 15 psychiatric hospitals in Belgium on non-terminal psychiatric patients who request death.
