Brussels....passing legislation to extend euthanasia to children

Brussels is expected to pass legislation extending euthanasia to children.... Brussels, Luxembourg and the Netherlands all have legalized euthanasia. No surprise that once the door is opened they want to extend it to children. The vocal opposition dispels the myth of compassion but they are not expected to prevail. It is cloaked in compassion but cost of providing care in socialized medicine is the elephant in the room.

This week, an "open letter" carrying the names of 160 Belgian pediatricians was issued to argue against the new law, claiming there is no urgent need for it and that modern medicine is capable of soothing the pain of even the sickest children.
The doctors also said there was no objective way of providing that children possess the "discernment" to know what euthanasia means.
