Belgium Eyes Child Euthanasia – How far behind are we?


While one can be quick to be appalled when reading what Belgium has in store for children, recall that we are not so far behind with our DHHS Sibelius. Just connecting a few dots for those who still think Obamacare is going to be swell.

Recall this? Kidney Patients told to accept death, forgo Dialysis –  Asking Kidney Patients to Forgo a Free Lifeline

As they calmly say:

“It was meant to keep young and middle-aged people alive and productive, many of the patients who take advantage of the law are old…

One idea, promoted by leading specialists, is to change the way doctors refer to the decision to forgo dialysis. Instead of saying that a patient is withdrawing from dialysis or agreeing not to start it, these specialists say the patient has chosen “medical management without dialysis”.  ”That is the preferred term,”

Obama said

We will change the way we pay for health care – not by procedure or the number of days spent in a hospital, but with new incentives for doctors and hospitals to prevent injuries and improve results. . . . If we’re wrong, and Medicare costs rise faster than we expect, this approach will give the independent commission (Death Panels) the authority to make additional savings by further improving Medicare.”

BRUSSELS — Since euthanasia was legalized in Belgium in 2002, Belgians have been euthanized for blindness, depression, anorexia nervosa, and a botched sex change operation.

Now, Belgians want to allow euthanasia for children.

Under legislation currently being debated in the Belgian Parliament, terminally ill or suffering children under 18 could be euthanized if they request it, their parents consent to it, and an expert deems the child capable of understanding their decision.

The bill is widely supported and is expected to become law.

Euthanasia is now considered medical therapy in Belgium.

Not only do two-thirds of Belgians favor the new euthanasia bill, but in a controversial poll, three-quarters said it would be okay for parents to euthanize their sick children without the child’s consent.

“The child does not have the maturity to get married or to buy alcohol or to buy cigarettes if he is 14. Now we are saying that because he is suffering, he might have the possibility to ask for euthanasia,” Carine Boucher, with the European Center for Bio-ethics in Brussels, said.

    I would like to call you a wacko and a conspiracy theorist but the fact is that this is where we are headed. How can you add millions of people to the healthcare rolls and control costs at the same time if you are not making life or death decisions based on cost?

      It seems clear to you and me, so join the club. Does anyone think that hundreds of thousands of dollars will be spent on premature babies? But then again, isn’t Belgium turning into a Islamic majority country? Once we lose the respect for life we are doomed.

    Wow! This could be bad news for rebelous teenagers. Distraught parents could decide to euthnize their way out of raising a teenager.

    Seriously, our world is going to hell in a hand basket. Sometimes I’m glad my time in this veil of tears will end before I have to see the worst of what is yet to come.

      I am with you all the way around. Hitler will seem tame after this. Stalin, Mao, not far behind. Now they are turning young against old via obamacare. Last train out. You may in the end be better off where you are.
