Belgium’s children have been endangered in their mother’s wombs for decades through abortion and curettage, and now they are in danger of being killed in their beds at home or in hospital with the legalisation of euthanasia of children under the age of 18.
The Belgian legislators justified their evil action against the advice of 120 pediatricians by saying euthanasia would only be restricted to a small number of children each year. Every time a country legalises gravely evil acts they always attempt to minimize the moral significance of the new illegality. When the UK legalised abortion in 1967 supporters said its impact would be limited, but 5 millions murders later the UK is seeking to liberalise the killing of babies through abortion even more. When Enda Kenny passed his abortion law last year the pro-abort politicians and supporters said that only a small number of children would be effected. But in the months since legalising abortion there have been moves to include more categories of babies that can be killed.
And pro-abortionists want parents to the right to kill babies and children if they decide for whatever reason that their children are a problem or inconvenience. A pro-abortion Democrat politician recently argued that a baby having colic was a good reason to have an abortion. Wessel-Kroeschell said:
‘“I want to let you know that we as women know about babies. We love them. We adore them. But we also know that they have the challenges they bring. They have colic, the sleepless nights, the finances, the disciplinary challenges, the education challenges, the birth defects, the mental health issues, the learning disabled…the list goes on and on. And what women do know is that we know where our limits are. We absolutely know where our limits are –whether we’re ready, whether we’re physically ready, whether we’re emotionally ready, whether we’re finically ready to be parents– And we have the right to make those decisions.”
The next step is for parents to have the legal right to kill their children if they have colic, or give their parents sleepless nights, discipline problems, in fact any type of problem.
Ann Furedi, the director of the industrial abortion provider BPAS, is a supporter of After Birth Abortion, which is another term for infanticide. Furedi holds that ‘ There is nothing magical about passing through the birth canal that transforms it from a fetus into a person.’
Belgium’s euthanasia of children has opened the door for the Culture of Death practitioners to gradually push the boundaries of when its acceptable to kill a child.
BPAS Chief Executive says people have trouble with late abortion because the baby ‘looks like a baby’
