How much some-more justification do we need? For the Colson Center, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.
“Euthanasia corrupts all it touches.” So writes Wesley J. Smith at National Review. And he’s positively right.
The latest in this section of the enlightenment of death comes from Belgium. There, Smith reports, palliative caring doctors and nurses are quitting. Why?
Well, Smith paints this scenario: You go into the margin of palliative caring since “you have a special place in your heart for the dying.” “But then,” Smith continues, “your country decides you should also turn killers of the patients you wish to help. If you refuse, you face open criticism, the awaiting of being sued, and maybe one day, veteran censure.”
As one Belgian oncologist put it, “palliative caring units are … at risk of apropos ‘houses of euthanasia’, which is the conflicting of what they were meant to be.” So some-more and some-more palliative caring nurses and doctors are quitting.
How many times do we have to repeat it: The “right to die” will eventually turn “the avocation to die.” And that’s not just loyal in Belgium.
