Woman’s Suicide For Children In Vain

An Indian woman committed suicide so her two blind sons could receive her eyes and see. But doctors say the chances of success are bleak. Thirty-seven-year-old Tamizhselvi’s sons, Kumaran, 17, and Kumar, 15, have been blind since birth. Doctors in the southern city of Chennai say Kumar’s condition cannot be helped with a cornea transplant and also suspect his elder brother does not have a cornea defect. We had told the family earlier itself that a corneal transplant was not needed for the younger son, said hospital official G Seethalakshmi. The family is insisting Tamizhselvi’s corneas can only be used for her sons and no one else — via Warren Ellis
