Only a barbaric civilization kills its youngest and eldest members. Belgium just passed a law that allows parents to kill their terminally ill children with their consent. What sort of consent does a small child have? They are swayed by their parents, they don’t have a strong will of their own. Thus out of the parent’s self interest, they die. The Christian leaders of Belgium spoke out, and said that there is enough pain relief to let illness run its natural course, but to no avail.
It wasn’t even close, the vote was about 2 to 1 in favor of extending euthanasia to children, as if it was truly a choice for the children to make. Thus continues the slide into heathen darkness for the West. If we are willing to kill our grandparents and our children, our own flesh and blood, how fares our neighbor or the stranger? Truly the love of many IS waxing cold.
In the United States alone tens of millions of babies have been aborted since Roe V Wade, sacrificed in the name of self interest and pride, for their lives were judged to be less than their parents interests. Many claim it is done for the mother’s health, but rarely is it so, and even then it is cowardice, self interest, and pride. The sad irony is the mother does not escape her soul’s anguish, which is damaged greatly by the abominable act, usually leading to the mother requiring mind altering drugs to dull the pain. WHY ARE SO MANY AMERICAN WOMEN ON XANAX OR ZOLOFT?! Apparently their health wasn’t truly considered.
Many people are finding out the hard way now that under Obamacare the health insurance companies do not cover life saving treatments, placing the family into the bind of not being able to do anything to save their elders especially. Medicare does indeed conduct death panels, authorizing life saving treatments, or not. I have seen this in the first degree. Those who cannot afford supplemental insurance that actually covers the treatment in the case of denial, die. Health insurance costs have skyrocketed, and the quality of the coverage has plummeted.
Those who are guilty always have plausible deniability when they sit in the high places, it is no secret that the ultra rich who truly run the governments want to reduce the population. These are the presses they have set up to squeeze our weakest members of society, who are our family members, our neighbors, our friends. These plutocrats are of the devil.
This is why the Christian voice must not be silenced in public. This is why they are silencing us, because we oppose their agenda. If we are quiet no hears the Word, and the people sleep! They call us bigots, unscientific, relics, and monsters. Who is murdering the children? Who is putting the pillow over grandfather’s face?
Do not be fooled by their words, they are not in the moral right, EVER. They seek to blind others to mask their motives. Their desires drive their dark evangelism in all these agendas. Whose eyes receive light and who dwells in darkness? Those who burn in their own lusts dwell in darkness so they cannot be seen.
These reprobates who drive euthanasia, abortion, medical corruption, and many other filthy things seek to blind the eyes of the world. First they introduce the ideas to the public, then they desensitize them, then they get them to join them either directly or by getting them to approve/ take pleasure in what they do. this has been done over and over on virtually every issue these past 50 years. They do evil then justify it by calling it equality, which should be called the lowest common denominator by their definition!
The young are the key, if they win over the young it doesn’t matter what we say, and they know it. Correct the young often, take an interest in what they learn, stand for what you believe in, or lose the West to savagery. We are way behind, if the West does not learn fear, it shall never cleave to wisdom.
Belgium grants euthanasia right to terminally ill kids

Belgium has become the first country to allow euthanasia for terminally ill children after the lower house of parliament passed the law by a large majority Thursday.
86 lawmakers in the Chamber of Representatives voted in favor with 44 against and 12 abstentions. The governing socialists, the liberals and most of the opposition parties supported it, while the Christian Democrats voted against.
The bill caused a rare union between Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders who issued a joint declaration against it.
But its supporters insist that it is humane and there are clear checks and balances in the law to prevent it being abused.
“This is not about lethal injections for children. This is about terminally ill children, whose death is imminent and who suffer greatly,” said Carnia Van Cauter, a lawmaker for the Flemish Liberal Democrats who backed the law.
The law states that children seeking euthanasia must be terminally ill, rather than just in an unbearable state of suffering, which is the qualification for adults. Adult euthanasia has been legal in Belgium since 2002.

Children who wish to end their lives must be “capable of discernment”, the parents must approve the child’s decision and a psychologist must test them to confirm they understand what they are doing.
But opponents say these rules are arbitrary and are the beginning of a slippery slope, which they say amounts to a “banalisation” of euthanasia.
Andre Joseph Leonard, the Archbishop of Brussels, questioned the approach of giving minors the right to decide their own death when they are not allowed to make a host of other emotional and economic decisions until they are 18.
Sonja Develter, a nurse who has cared for some 200 children in the final stages of their lives, and who opposed the law said that she didn’t expect many children to opt to die.
“In my experience as a nurse, I never had a child asking to end their life,” she told Reuters before the vote.
She added that requests for euthanasia often come from the parents of children who are emotionally exhausted from seeing their children fight for life for so long.
The vote has attracted more attention abroad than in Belgium. None of the major newspapers ran it on their front pages and TV news reports concentrated on the international coverage.
Euthanasia is also legal for adults in the neighboring Netherlands and Luxembourg, while in Switzerland it is legal if the person takes on an active role. It is also legal in the US states of Montana, Oregon, Vermont and Washington.In the Netherlands children over 12 can request to die.
