The deadly act of euthanasia knows no limits once it is begun. Euthanasia has been widely practiced in Belgium for years, limited to people who are at least 18 years old. But nothing satisfies proponents of euthanasia who are determined to extend euthanasia to children with disabilities. Legislation to accomplish that goal will be voted on by the Belgium Senate on November 26.
Dr. Peter Saunders CEO of Christian Medical Fellowship, a UK-based organization, states that “euthanasia is out of control in Belgium: a 500% increase in ten years; one third involuntary; half not reported; euthanasia for blindness, anorexia and botched sex change operations; organ transplant euthanasia; plans to extend euthanasia to children and people with dementia.”
Saunders believes the practice is out of control because there is no regulation and the process is fraught with conflicts of interests. Saunders continues: “If the euthanasia law in Belgium has taught us anything, it is that in Belgium the euthanasia doctors have been given all of the power in contrast to the patients who are given lethal injections.”
And now, the Belgian proponents want to include children in this horrendous practice. A travesty, for certain.
