Children Down as Young as Nine Euthanized in Belgium

Remember when euthanasia was about “choice” for adults? It was always baloney. The Netherlands has permitted infanticide of terminally ill and disabled babies — not technically legal, but so what? — for a long time. It also permits euthanasia down to age twelve.

Belgium has been even more zealous for euthanasia, removing all age limitations. Now a report shows that three children have been euthanized there in recent years. From the VOA story:

The minors were 9, 11 and 17 years old, according to the report. Their conditions ranged from muscular dystrophy to brain tumors to cystic fibrosis. The conditions of all three were determined to be terminal, and euthanasia was approved unanimously by the committee.

Children can’t consent to getting tattoos.

One assumes their parents gave the go ahead. But children are not pets to be put down — or, at least, shouldn’t be.

If anyone is upset, it’s only logical. (I hope people are upset. These days, who knows?) If killing is a “medical treatment,” how can it be denied to anyone based on age or competency?

Expect child- and infant-euthanasia legalization soon in Canada, by the way, where enthusiasts are already talking about it.

Such horrors will happen here too if we ever acquiesce fully to euthanasia consciousness. As I said, it’s only logical.
