Doctors say that balancing the finality of euthanasia with the often treatable and sometimes fleeting nature of many psychiatric illnesses is extraordinarily difficult. Claes said he is convinced treatment options remain for many of patients with psychological suffering being euthanized. (AP Photo/Maria Cheng)
