Skip to comments.Belgium euthanizes 'terminally ill child'
Posted on 09/17/2016 7:32:36 AM PDT by Olog-hai
A child suffering a fatal illness has become the first minor to be euthanized since age restrictions on mercy killings were lifted in the country. Mercy killings have become increasingly common in Benelux countries.
The head of Belgiums federal euthanasia commission gave no details of the child beyond saying the patient was an exceptional case of a young person with a terminal illness, the Het Nieuwsblad newspaper reported. [ ]
Any request for euthanasia must be made by the child, approved by a panel of physicians, an independent psychiatrist or psychologist and have parental consent. But the case files which document the patients condition and official deliberations leading to the decision often remain sealed.

From a quaint ancient document:
Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a course.
It will all end.
Any “civilization” that murders its children disappears...usually within about a generation.
“Any civilization that murders its children disappears...usually within about a generation.”
See Carthage, fall of....
We’ve been doing it since the early 70’s, that’s at least two generations.
China is at the precipice, perhaps has gone over it. We won’t know for a while.
The heights of insanity. No death penalty but euthanize children?
How about giving prisoners the option to self euthanize?
Nobody cares about the Hippocratic oath anymore. :-(
We did not talk about the "hispanic" vote then. It was a tiny minority, not considered American.
We did not talk about the Asian vote then, because hardly anybody had met one, outside of San Francisco or downtown LA.
We did not talk about "Indian Americans", unless you meant Navajos and Apaches. No one - and I mean no one - knew anyone from Bombay, as it was known to us then.
Cuba was a place that was thought to be temporarily run by a thug, and the 200,000 or so Cubans who were temporary Refugees in South Florida were supposed to be getting ready to go back and use force to take their home back.
California was 20 million people, about 4% of whom termed themselves "Spanish". The term "hispanic" was not used. "Chicano" was a radical epithet that Mexican Separatists (i.e., terrorists) used to describe themselves.
All the "minorities" we talk of now except the Africans were not here in any significant number in 1965. They flooded in only in the last 4 decades because of the vacuum created by the lack of American children, both black and white.
The people who aborted their children, stopped having more then 1 or 2 (called "Replacement children" by Ehrlich and others), are now in their late 60's and 70's. Like their standard bearer - the hacking, coughing, dying Hillary Rodham Clinton - they are fading into the past, as any suicidal race will. It only took a generation, as I said.
What you are seeing now is the death of the modern Marxist "Democrat" party: if it weren't for their alien replacements, they would not exist as a political force anymore.
So I stand by my statement. The America I live in now looks NOTHING like the America I grew up in. Had my generation actually reproduced itself and increased itself as all prior generations had - the Americans who had 10 and 15 children per family (my GG Grandfather had 15, all lived) - we would not be having this discussion now.
The Rat party would not exist as it does now. Abortion and Euthanasia would still elicit the horror that we felt when we spoke of it then. And the Clintons would be in jail cells, probably for embezzling from their menial county government jobs that they are only qualified to do.
By "fatal illness" do they mean "depression" like the 20-something year-old woman Holland euthanized earlier this year?
Then came arsinic, strichnine, mercury, radiation and chemo therapy. A little to much salt can kill..
But you can’t tell that to the American people
“any civilization that murders its children disappears...usually within about a generation.”
Legalized infanticide Roe v Wade has been approved for 2 generations now.
Wow. In my heart I have known this too but you have put it very succinctly. We absolutely have lost our country.
OTOH, the left could simply look at greater numbers as just more people to corrupt. It has been going on since even before Wilsons time (the man who wrote Socialism and Democracy way back in 1887, just 39 years after the Communist Manifesto was published), after all.
Had my generation actually reproduced itself and increased itself as all prior generations had - the Americans who had 10 and 15 children per family (my GG Grandfather had 15, all lived) - we would not be having this discussion now
Republicans stood by and did nothing for 50 years as Democrats imported millions of new voters. The country now looks the way Ted Kennedy envisioned it would when LBJ and himself changed the demographic course of this nation back in 1965.
So now conservatives are praying for a miracle in the form of Donald Trump to reverse 50 years of these changes. Maybe it'll happen. I'm doubtful. At any rate, we needed Donald Trump back in 2000 instead of George "bring me more Mexican gardeners and Somali meat cutters" Bush to have been truly effective.
At least we'll be able to step aside and be entertained when the various racial demographics that make up today's Democratic Party battle it out amongst each other for power.

OK, I did, and except for an account about the chief defender’s wife “allegedly went out with her two children, insulted her husband, sacrificed her sons and jumped with them into a fire that the deserters had started. The deserters too then hurled themselves into the flames, upon which Scipio Aemilianus began weeping.”
And Scipio allegedly said, “A day will come when sacred Troy shall perish, And Priam and his people shall be slain.”
Got it from Wikipedia, which is about as reliable as the Fraud’s worshippers at Snopes, but I haven’t been able to find the direct relationship to your post.
Can you cite a more direct correlation?
This will ultimately be for ‘mental illness’ and where someone that believes Jesus is the only salvation for this sinful world is then diagnosed by these globalist NWO antichrist sycophant panel of experts as having some qualifying condition,
Evil times are here,
Notice how relentlessly they control the language.”Age-related restrictions on mercy killing were lifted” means “legal protections for sick or handicapped children were discarded.”
“The head of Belgium’s federal euthanasia commission said...”
While obamacare advocates howl in derision at any possibility of government controlled “death panels.”
