Shocker! Dutch to Expand Euthanasia Guidelines–Again

In a move that is utterly unsurprising, the Dutch are going to expand their euthanasia guidelines to permit the killing of infants. What a sick joke. Dutch doctors have been killing babies born with disabilities or terminal illnesses for more than a decade with nothing meaningful done about it–even though infanticide is murder under Dutch law. But we will keep hearing the ideologues of euthanasia continue to insist there is no slippery slope. In that, at least, they are right: It isn’t a slope: It is a bottomless abyss.
