Will She Choose Life? -UPDATED

Has Death come to exact payment from the Queen of the Culture of Death? 

The youngest son of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands may never wake from a coma. A tragic situation. But will the queen choose life and set her country on a different moral path? Her Majesty Beatrix, by the Grace of God, Queen of the Netherlands signed the Termination of Life on Request and Assisted Suicide Act on April 1, 2002. 

Can't help recalling Thompson's Hound of Heaven, "All things betray thee, who betrays Me." A good reminder this Lent. Are we, too, betraying Our Lord? 

UPDATE: Upon further reflection, wouldn't it be great if Beatrix would follow the holy example of Hedwig of Poland, Elizabeth of Portugal, Elisabeth of Hungary, and Margaret of Scotland. To whom shall we send this request? JPII? Edith Stein? Terri Schiavo?
