Skip to comments.Belgium: Senate Approves Measure Allowing Doctors to Euthanize Children
Posted on 12/13/2013 10:19:12 AM PST by Beave Meister
The Belgian Senate voted today 50-17 to extend euthanasia to children with disabilities, in a move pro-life advocates worldwide had been fearing would come and expand an already much-abused euthanasia law even further.
The vote today in the full Senate comes after a Senate committee voted 13-4 to allow minors to seek euthanasia under certain conditions and the measure also would extend the right to request euthanasia to adults with dementia. There is still a chance to stop the bill in the House of Representatives, though pro-life campaigners fear it will become law.
Currently the Belgian euthanasia law limits euthanasia to people who are at least 18 years old. This unprecedented bill would extend euthanasia to children with disabilities, says Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition. The Belgian Socialist government is adamant that the euthanasia law needs to extend to minors and people with dementia even though there is significant examples of how the current law is being abused and the bracket creep of acceptable reasons for euthanasia continues to grow. The current practice of euthanasia in Belgium appears to have become an easy way to cover-up medical errors.

A “natural progression” from abortion.
Socialist? Impossible! B. Hussein has assured us that socialism is cool!
It’s simply a preparation, that’s all. The final touch is when “compelling State interest” is applied. But we all knew that.
They are already euthanising people who are depressed or tired of life because they have taken the interpretations of saying physical and/or psychological suffering you dont have to have both, if you have one, why is that not enough? If you are suffering, its a personal experience and it would be discriminatory for someone to judge what a person is suffering, he says. ‘What this teaches us is that despite the governments assurances that they will set very strict criteria, that wont work.’
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
“Mommy I fell and have a boo boo!”
“Don’t worry Johnny, Dr. Mengele has assured us everything will be fine. Now just do as the doctor ordered and breath in the gas”
He’s also assured us that the blue pill is cool. We just have to die!
I’m good with this as long as it’s applied to the child crying, screaming and kicking my seat from behind on a long flight.
I wonder if the law specifies they are to be held by the ankles and their heads bashed against rocks, or, as a cost saving measure, they are to be fed to zoo animals?
All civilized countries in the world have laws saying that a minor is not capable of giving consent to sex.
All of a sudden now, a minor is ‘capable’ of consenting to being killed?
This proves that all liberals are nothing but a$$hole$.
These people, those who approve, and those who partake are going to hell.
Germany needs to complete its hat trick on Belgium.
This is particularly horrific. These are vulnerable children deserving love and protection no matter what. These are evil people.
I’d recommend just praying to Jesus, likely have better results.
It seems nobody anymore thinks life is worthwhile. Just off anyone not completely perfect.
“Id recommend just praying to Jesus, likely have better results.”
Whatever works for you.
