Heartbreaking: Belgium Legalizes Euthanasia for Children
A heartbreaking story out of Europe reported that Belgium has, in a landslide vote, legalized euthanasia for children. The report states:
“In 50-17 vote today, the Belgian Senate approved a bill that would allow euthanasia for children. The bill now goes to the House of Representatives for final approval before being sent to the King to be signed into law. Most political observers are predicting the passage of the bill. Currently the law in Belgium allows euthanasia requests for those over 18 and of sound mind, although it is acknowledged that these restrictions are widely ignored. The bill allows euthanasia, with parental consent, for children experiencing intolerable physical pain and who are suffering from a terminal medical condition. Since legalization of euthanasia in 2002, Belgium has seen a nearly 500 percent increase in deaths by euthanasia. Various studies have found that patients in hospitals are increasingly being killed without their consent or the consent of their families.”
This is yet another way in which people show no respect for life. We kill unborn children in the womb, we kill the elderly, we kill adults who request it, and now we kill children.
Does anyone actually think it will stop here? How long before Belgium is killing the disabled? How long before those who are unable to “contribute to society” are terminated? The mindset of the Nazi regime is once again creeping through society. We’ve forgotten how to celebrate life in all its various forms and to see the beauty that can result from suffering. I don’t wish pain and suffering on anyone, but I wish life was celebrated.
Parents somehow finding it acceptable to kill their kids ought to be ashamed. Click here for original article.
