The Netherlands is leading the way down the slippery slope of euthanasia. Quite apart from a massive and continued abortion Holocaust, it is now also legal to kill anyone, from the oldest down to little babies, for 'mercy' reasons. As they did, remember, in Nazi Germany.
Legislators approved euthanasia for children under 12 in an announcement made on April 14. Dutch Health Minister Ernst Kuipers wrote that the measures would be aimed at “incurably ill children who are suffering hopelessly and unbearably, in whom palliative care options are not sufficient to alleviate the suffering and who are expected to die within the foreseeable future.”
Such rare and tragic cases were the excuse also for euthanasia for the elderly too, but within a few years, the 'accepted' reasons for such killings include everything down to depression, with enthusiasts suggesting that homelessness should be added to the list.
With this development, Dutch citizens can be legally killed at every stage of their lives: in the womb through abortion, while still young through euthanasia, and in the later stages of life through assisted suicide or euthanasia.
What Does the New Law Do?
The current rules—the Scheme for Termination of Pregnancy and Termination of Life for Newborns—are being amended to thus include children aged 1 through 12. As noted, he argued this would impact the “incurably ill children who are suffering hopelessly and unbearably, in whom palliative care options are not sufficient to alleviate the suffering and who are expected to die within the foreseeable future.”
The legislation adds that a doctor must “completely” inform the child and the parents about the supposed “hopeless and unbearable” suffering. The doctors and parents are supposed to communicate to the child (aged 1—12) in a “manner appropriate to the child’s comprehension” that “the termination of life is the only reasonable possibility to remove the suffering.”
