Euthanasia For Children

I really don’t understand how people can argue that the ‘slippery slope’ argument is baseless when it comes to euthanasia. There are so many examples of how a law, which was introduced to permit euthanasia for people in certain specific circumstances, has since progressed to include precisely those vulnerable people that we always feared would eventually be included.

An example of this is Belgium. There are currently discussions underway in Belgium about changing the law to allow children to choose voluntary euthanasia. I cannot comprehend how anyone can even begin to think that such a law could be justified. It is, quite frankly, mind-boggling.

Anyway I came across an article by Charles Foster, which expresses some of what I would want to say on this subject - “Euthanasia For Children Is Wrong”.

Would love to hear your thoughts on the matter.
