Quote of the day: Euthanasia “floodgates” hard to close once opened

euthanasiabelgium2In 2002, the government of Belgium formed the Federal Evaluation and Control Commission for Euthanasia. Last week, they announced that seven of the seats are vacant—citing particular trouble finding doctors who would serve.

There are two reasons for this: One, many doctors remain uncomfortable with wielding the power of medicine to kill their patients. Second, in Belgium, some have refused to join the committee due to the high caseload of euthanasia cases. Some reports have noted that the number of euthanasia cases have increased by 90% in just three years.

This little predicament in Belgium should serve as a warning sign to the rest of the world on two fronts: across the board—not just in Belgium—doctors don’t want to endorse this practice. Secondly, once it is introduced, the floodgates are opened wide and it’s hard to draw a line.

Dear Reader:

Stories like the one you just read transform hearts and minds.

For example, one of our followers, Ross, messaged us and commented:

“I began to question my pro-choice views after reading articles about Live Action…Live Action is primarily responsible for my becoming Pro-Life through their well-thought-out, scientific information and the emotionally and uplifting stories of real people with real experiences in saving the lives of their children regardless of what others might say.”

Knowledge is power and CAN open eyes to SEE the truth. And, YOU can provide the spark to transform someone’s mind, just like Ross.

The DAILY publishing at Live Action News is only made possible through generous people, like you, who give $5, $10, or $25.

Your gift today will not only keep these stories coming in 2020, but also help us open more eyes and change minds to be fully pro-life and save lives.

Will you join us in creating a world where the killing of preborn children is unthinkable and support Live Action News by making your tax-deductible gift today?
