REPORTER: TODAY PEOPLE ARE

EUTHANIZ

EUTHANIZED FOR BLINDNESS.

UNDER LEGISLATION, TERMINALLY

ILL OR SUFFERING CHILDREN UNDER

18 IF THEY REQUESTED, THEIR

PARENTS CONSENT AND EXPERT DEEMS

THE CHILD IS CAPABLE OF

UNDERSTANDED.

IT IS WIDELY SUPPORTED AND

EXPECTED TO BECOME LAW.

THEY SAY IT IS NECESSARY AND

COMPASSIONATE.

IT IS A CULTURE OF DEATH.

EUTHANASIA IS LISTED AS MEDICAL

THERAPY IN BELGIUM.

IN ANOTHER CONTROVERSIAL POLL,

THREE QUARTERS SAID IT WOULD BE

OKAY FOR PARENTS TO

EUTHANASIAIZE THEIR SICK

CHILDREN WITHOUT THE CHILD'S

CONSENT.

THE EUROPEAN CENTER FOR BIO

ETHICS IN BRUSSELS.

THE CHILD DOESN'T HAVE THE

MATURE TO GET MARRIED, BUY

ALCOHOL OR CIGARETTES, NOW WE

ARE TRYING TO SAY THEY MIGHT

HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO ASK FOR

EUTHANASIA.

REPORTER: FOUNDER OF MARCH

FOR LIFE.

CHILDREN NEVER CHOOSE TO DIE.

I DON'T BELIEVE A CHILD UNDER

THE AGE OF 18 IS SICK AND ILL

WANTS TO DIE.

WHO WILL GIVE THE SUGGESTION

THAT ONE OF THE SOLUTION IS

EUTHANASIA.

A CHILD DOESN'T KNOW WHAT

EUTHANASIA IS.

A CHILD DOESN'T KNOW WHAT DEATH

IS.

REPORTER: SICK CHILDREN

ALMOST NEVER WANT TO DIE.

WHY IS SUCH A LAW EVEN

NECESSARY?

FOR ME IT IS SYMBOLIC LAW.

REVENGE OF THE SOCIALIST AND

LIBERAL PARTIES OF THIS KIND OF

PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SHOW LOOK,

CHRISTIANITY IN BELGIUM IS

FINISHED.

REPORTER: SOME BELGIUM

DOCTORS ARE KILLING NEWBORNS

WITH SPINE BIFIDA IF THE PARENTS

REQUEST IT.

WHAT DOCTORS SHOULD BE DOING IS

OFFERING WORLD CLASS CARE THAT

ELEVATES SUFFERING.

THE MEDIA AND LEFT IN BELGIUM,

DOCTORS THAT RESIST EUTHANASIA

ARE UNCARING.

IF YOU REFUSE EUTHANASIA YOU

ARE THE BAD DOCTOR

UNDER THE TERMINOLOGY, IT IS

COMPLETELY DETERMINED -- DOCTORS

SHOULD NOT KILL.

REPORTER: A VOTE IS EXPECTED

SOON, DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.
