So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


What would PETA or CPS say about it, for that matter?

Euthanizing children. Yeah, you read it right. I found this on It seems these people think they're performing mercy killings on terminally ill children.

"A hospital in the Netherlands--the first nation to permit euthanasia--recently proposed guidelines for mercy killings of terminally ill newborns, and then made a startling revelation: It has already begun carrying out such procedures, which include administering a lethal dose of sedatives," the Associated Press reports form Amsterdam. had this to say about it:
How long before the news media start referring to this as "the procedure opponents call 'total-birth abortion' "? An earlier piece from Knight Ridder says the protocol "covers any child up to age 12," so the Dutch could be looking at 51st-trimester abortions.

I thought I would get physically ill when I read about this. I was diagnosed with terminal cancer when I was 7. The doctors were going to remove my eye in an effort to slow down the fast-moving cancer that was eating through my face. The prognosis: no treatment available and only three months to live. This type of cancer didn't respond to chemo or radiation. Biopsies were the only way to remove it, along with the surrounding tissue to try to slow it down. Nothing did. I genuinely believe prayer saved my life. There were many prayers all across the country and the next day, the doctors could find no evidence of the damaged tissue. God had a plan for me - pure and simple. As foul-mouthed as I am, I believe God has purpose for me and I strive to be the best at the tasks He has given me.

But, I digress. I could have easily been one of these euthanized children and think of all the world would have been deprived of - my three beautiful children and my glowing personality. I feel that I have been a blessing to many in this world and will continue to be a blessing. We're not talking about the family pet who has a degenerative disease. We're talking about living, breathing PEOPLE. I just can't fathom it.

    I think my hubby blogged on this awhile back. IMHO it's why abortion is such a slippery slope. Infants with abnormalities are allowed to die as well. My nephew was born 9 weeks early this summer. I wonder what would have happened to him there? He's perfect now and is clearly storing all his fat in his cheeks. Another nephew almost died at birth 5 years ago. What would their fates have been if this were allowed? It makes me sick to think about what they are doing there, not to mention the elderly.

    Well if the elderly CHOOSE euthanasia that's one thing IMO. If a doctor chooses for them that is murder in my opinion. Makes you wonder why so many lefties here want us to be more like the EUnich...

    If you choose it and carry it out, it's called suicide. If you choose it and someone else carries it out for you it's euthanasia or murder depending on your view of things. If some else chooses it and carries it out for you it's murder. Why is this so hard for people. If you want to kill yourself, go ahead. If you need someone else's help you probably don't want to go badly enough.
