Belgium may legalize euthanasia of children with disabilities


picture-3552Ray: The following is quoted from another news source.

Some call it a “slippery slope” and others call it an incremental extension, nonetheless, doctors appear to be breaking the law by killing, by euthanasia, children with disabilities, such as spina bifida.

Smith states that if assisted suicide is accepted, the same will occur in the United States. In the same way, if euthanasia is accepted, the same will occur in Canada, Australia, etc.

In Canada we have a Charter of Rights and Freedoms that recognizes that we are all equal under the law. Therefore, legalizing euthanasia or assisted suicide in Canada will logically be extended, through the court, to all Canadians. You can’t have a little bit of euthanasia.

One thought on “Belgium may legalize euthanasia of children with disabilities

  1. In their other article on euthanasia in Belgium they try to claim that many instances of euthanasia are non-consensual, writing things like “45% of the euthanasia deaths done by nurses were done without request or consent.”

    However, if one examines the study in question it is revealed the 45% of non-consented deaths are those of people who couldn’t have consented (i.e. were in a coma or suffering from severe dementia). In those cases the patient had either expressed a desire for euthanasia beforehand or the primary caregiver had consented.

    Regardless of what you think of euthanasia, characterising those deaths as nefarious or a flaw in the system is simply disingenuous. The same procedure was followed as, say, for do-not-resuscitate instructions or other practices linked to end of life care.
