The Gómez Ulla Hospital in Madrid, which gave no response to the patient, this September.Olmo Calvo. Sitting in the armchair of her apartment in Madrid, this woman said on September 3 that she couldn't take it anymore, that her life was limited to fighting unbearable pain, but that she lost the battle every day, every night, and that the only hope that still separated her from the drawer where she kept the substance with which she would have to commit suicide last Sunday was the possibility that she would be euthanized, whose regulatory law had entered into force in Spain on June 25. Just a few days later, on July 7, she went to see her reference doctor at the Gómez Ulla hospital in Madrid and asked him to help her die. The doctor initially said yes, but 48 hours later she telephoned her to inform her that she had declared herself a conscientious objector.The law establishes that in these cases another doctor must be appointed to examine the patient and assess whether he meets the requirements established by law. But she complained that she only got silence. Last Sunday, the 19th, this woman who had told her case in EL PAÍS under the condition that her name never be revealed, opened that drawer, booked a room in a hotel in Madrid and took her own life.
