Belgian doctors give healthy woman, 24, green light to die by euthanasia because of ‘suicidal thoughts’

Belgian doctors are planning to kill a perfectly healthy 24-year-old woman by euthanasia because she is suffering from ‘suicidal thoughts’.

It is estimated that five people a day in Belgium die with the assistance of doctors, ranging from those with terminal illness to others with chronic, but not life threatening ailments.

Now, a woman, known only as the fictitious name Laura, has been told she qualifies for euthanasia, despite not having a terminal disease.

    Well ok then. Carry on.

    I doubt many muslims are choosing this option. It would be primarily those with a secular perspective since they perceive human life to only have subjective value. So if you (or a physician) decides that your life is no longer of value, then it is no longer of value.

    These doctors should be charged with murder

  • Hey, remember when some people warned of a slippery slope and other people laughed them off?

      I saw many other scenarios but I never could have imagined one like this.

      I’ve never supported capital punishment, personally, not because I don’t think some crimes don’t warrant the death sentence (I think some do) but because I am fearful of my government having the authority to legally put its citizens to death. I have a similar objection to euthanasia ….

      • Capital punishment is one thing.

        Euthanasia laws are brought in as hard cases. One knows what is said about hard cases.

    Isn’t everyone in Belgium suicidal? It sure looks like the country as a whole is committing suicide.

      It would be but for the beer.

    Wait till a father applies on the grounds he no longer wants to pay support, or where someone wants to die in order to stop paying taxes…

    The Kaffirs need to make room for the new arrivals.

  • Look, this sounds mean. I hope this woman sorts out her problems. I don’t wish death on her. But…

    If you want to kill yourself, what’s stopping you?

    What she really wants is to be told that this is a safe procedure, even as the needle slips in. She doesn’t think she wants to live but she doesn’t really want to die, so she’s trying to convince herself that death isn’t frightening. The man in the white coat wouldn’t do anything horrible to you.

    It’s part of her emotional sickness, and the state has no business playing into her lethal delusions.

      “Razors will pain you,
      Rivers are damp,
      Acids will stain you,
      And drugs cause cramp.
      Guns are unlawful,
      Nooses give,
      Gas smells awful.
      You might as well live.” – Dorothy Parker

    ISIS talent spotters are really missing an opportunity there. Just sayin’

  • Here’s an idea! Spread the word that there’s no need to go through the trouble of planning a massacre or suffering the privations of the battlefield; all you have to do is go to Belgium and take a painless needle and you’ll get your virgins- as long as your last words are “Allahu Akbar”.

    Since the EU people clearly have suicidal thoughts toward the continent on which they live, I hope this inspires them to visit the nearest Brussels euthanasia practitioners.

    They gave the same consent to a set of healthy twins a while back. I forget the trumped up reason but I think it was depression. it’s not been a slippery slope for a long time now. it’s a headlong rush into hell.

    I guess “primum non nocere” has been ditched.

  • Maggat

    That slope is getting steeper and slipperier.
