Our friends at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview released a commentary today highlighting recent events in Belgium.
Belgian doctors have euthanized at least three minors suffering from brain tumors, muscular dystrophy, and cystic fibrosis.
In January we shared news that euthanasia and assisted suicide are forcing hospice workers and other palliative care experts in Belgium to quit.
One Belgian doctor said, “palliative care units are . . . at risk of becoming ‘houses of euthanasia’, which is the opposite of what they were meant to be.”
As we have said time and time again, being pro-life is about much more than opposing abortion. We do not eliminate suffering by eliminating people who are suffering. We must respect the sanctity of human life at the end of life as well as at the beginning.
