Belgian Doctors Kill 5 per Day

Belgium has jumped head first into the darkness that is the culture of death. Euthanasia deaths–the ones recorded, more are done sub rosa–have gone up 27% in one year. From the story:

The numbers of euthanasia in Belgium have beaten another record in 2013 with 1,816 cases against 1,432 in 2012, an increase of 26.8%, according to the latest figures released by the newspapers Sudpresse group.

“You could say that currently there euthanasia 150 per month in Belgium or, even more telling, euthanasia 5 per day,” the newspaper said. It is here that declared to the Commission control and evaluation of euthanasia euthanasia.

Realize, that these killings include elderly couples, a despairing transsexual, and psychiatric patients.

Meanwhile, back in 2010, a study by the Canadian Medical Association found that 32% of euthanasia killings in the Flemish areas were done imposed without request or consent.

Oh, and here’s another tidbit: About 25% of patients dehydrated to death in Belgium are so killed without consent.

Culture of death, Wesley? What culture of death?
