Via Vox Day:
UTRECHT, January 11, 2005 – The Royal Dutch Medical Association has concluded, after a three-year investigation, that Dutch doctors ought to be able to kill patients who are not ill but who are judged to be “suffering through living.”
The decision contradicts the Dutch Supreme Court that ruled in 2002 that patients may only request euthanasia if they have a “classifiable physical or mental condition,” and not if they are merely “tired of life.” The law however, does not require a medical condition, but only that a patient must be “suffering hopelessly and unbearably.”
Like Cubs fans?
Seriously, this is the ultimate end of the pro-abort worldview–eugenics as public policy. The culture of death, while farther advanced in Europe than in the U.S., is pushing inexorably toward the goal of killing anyone the state decides is inferior in some way–genetically, mentally, and now, emotionally and/or spiritually.
Think about this: There are now places in this world where it is less acceptable to insult Jews or homosexuals than it is to discuss killing healthy, functional people who are simply depressed.
