Ignorant Making the Rules on Euthanasia

I get so furious with busybodies who think they have a right to interfere with other people’s end of life decisions. Usually they are religious zealots, a modern day Spanish Inquisition, who imagine that imposing their crazy religious superstitions on others is good for them, even if they suffer intolerably as a result. Invariably, these busybodies are unusually robust people who have not a clue what it is like to be terminally ill or to deal with untreatable pain or nausea that goes on and on without a break.

Euthanasia For Kids

Belgium is enacting an euthanasia law for people under 18. It requires parental consent and terminal illness. I welcome this. There is no more reason to permit Christians to torment children than to torment adults to placate their sadistic god. However, Anna Marie Tremonti, of the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) ’s The Current was concerned that children would not understand that death was permanent. I personally figured it out at age four by repeatedly digging up a turtle to see if it would truly stay dead. Further, it does not matter if the child has poor judgement, because the parents have a veto. The problem with the law is a child could have the misfortune of two sadistic Catholic parents who will force her to suffer so matter what because their god feasts on suffering.
