    Epidemic: Euthanasia Deaths Increase 25 Percent in Belgium

    This article is from the LifeNews website

    Recent studies concerning the Belgian euthanasia law found that: 32% of the assisted deaths are done without request and 47% of the assisted deaths go unreported in the Flanders region of Belgium. Another recent study found that even though nurses are prohibited from doing euthanasia, that in fact nurses are euthanizing their patients in Belgium. There has never been an attempted prosecution for abuses of the Belgian euthanasia law.

    Confirming that euthanasia is out-of-control in Belgium the 2012 euthanasia statistics indicate that there was a 25% increase in the number of assisted deaths in Belgium.

    Recent government statistics indicate that the number of reported assisted deaths increased from 1133 in 2011 to 1432 in 2012, representing 2% of all deaths in Belgium. The number of reported assisted deaths in 2010 was 954. It is important to note that these statistics do not include the unreported assisted deaths.

    The study that found that 32% of the assisted deaths are done without request, indicated that the people who died by euthanasia without request were usually: incompetent, did not have cancer, were over the age of 80, and living in a hospital. The same study indicated that these deaths represented “a vulnerable patient group.”

      I am unsurprised to see that Belgium’s euthanasia problem is as out of control as that in the neighbouring Netherlands, which is as poorly regulated according to Hubert Hendin’s excellent book on the subject.

      What do disability groups in the Netherlands and Belgium think about assisted killing in their countries? Is it possible to find out? I think their perspectives would be quite valuable, given that they seem targeted by these deathmongers.

      Thank you for reprinting this excellent article!
