When Children “Choose” to Die

All must be sacrificed for the demon-gods “autonomy” and “choice.” This is why they are killing children in Belgium.

In 2014, Belgium, which already had perhaps the most permissive euthanasia laws in the world, amended those laws to permit doctors to euthanize children.

As is always the case, the rationale was a mixture of wooly thinking: a professed desire to alleviate suffering and a belief that children, some as young as nine, have the requisite emotional and intellectual capacity to choose to end their lives.

This is lethal nonsense, as Charles Lane of the Washington Post has repeatedly pointed out.

Lane’s most recent column on the subject was prompted by a July report issued by the Belgian agency that regulates euthanasia.

According to the report, between the start of 2016 and the end of 2017, Belgian doctors euthanized three children, one of them only nine years old and another eleven years old.

A member of the commission told Lane the law was strictly followed. He said, “I saw mental and physical suffering so overwhelming that I thought we did a good thing.”

Actually, as Lane pointed out, the gentleman didn’t see anything. He was “relying on reports by the anonymous physicians who participated in the euthanasias.” The simple fact is there’s no way to independently verify the physicians’ assertions about the hopelessness of these children’s conditions, or how close they were to natural death. We simply have to take their word for it.

In Belgium, euthanasia is, to borrow an expression from science, a “black box.” We can see what it does—kill people, old and young—but we have no real idea about how it really works.
