(RNS) The law will make Belgium the first country to allow euthanasia for children if they are terminally ill and living with "constant and unbearable physical suffering."


  1. Deacon John M. Bresnahan

    Let’s get it over with. The ancient Spartans had a solution–if a child’s parent decided a child shouldn’t be living any more (for whatever reason), then the child’s father could simply smash the child’s head on a rock and feed the body to wild animals.
    The “inconvenient truth” here is that secularism is turning our culture into a killing culture (For compassionate reasons, of course.)

    • Because killing children was never part of Christian culture….unless they were the wrong sect…or wrong faith….or wrong color…or not rich enough.
