An incredible story about Mother Teresa [4:05]
December 12, 2013: The Belgian Senate voted 50-17 today IN FAVOR of a bill that would allow EUTHANASIA FOR CHILDREN. The bill now goes to the House of Representatives for final approval before being sent to the King to be signed into law.
Most political observers are predicting the passage of the bill.
In 2002, Belgium legalized euthanasia on request for those 18 and over. Since then, the number of deaths by euthanasia has sky-rocketed and people in hospitals are increasingly being killed without their consent or the consent of their families.
Studies have demonstrated that:
- 32% of euthanasia deaths in the Flemish region of Belgium had been done without an explicit request;
- 45% of euthanasia deaths involving nurses in Belgium were without a specific request;
- 47.2% of euthanasia deaths in Belgium were not officially reported (which is required by the law);
- and elderly Belgians are becoming increasingly afraid of being hospitalized.
