Belgium Proposes ‘Death on Demand’ Euthanasia Law

hospital-pd(Christian Concern) A law that would allow ‘death on demand’ is to be put before legislators in Belgium.

Already the country with the world’s most permissive euthanasia policy, it is now to consider the introduction of a law which would stop doctors from denying euthanasia requests from patients.

      So you do compare people taking the final decision on their own life, to relieve intractable suffering, with the murderous results of a fascist, racist and antisemitist regime?

      And you do not see any problem in doing so?

          You mean you don’t have anything valid to add in the discussion outside your vicious analogy?

    You can’t preach the gospel on a street corner without it being considered a hate crime, but hurry up and help kill people who want to die is ok… maybe they think it’s a good idea for population control, with all the people fleeing to Europe they need to make more room.
