Under Socialized Medicine, Belgian Nurses Admit to Killing Patients

Our government-dominated healthcare future is already on display in Belgium, where liberalism has triumphed to the extent that many Belgian nurses freely admit to killing the patients in their charge:

A high proportion of deaths classed as euthanasia in Belgium involved patients who did not ask for their lives to be ended, a study found.

More than 100 nurses admitted to researchers that they had taken part in ‘terminations without request or consent’.

The legal term for this is murder.

Since its legalisation eight years ago, euthanasia now accounts for 2 per cent of deaths in Belgium — or around 2,000 a year.

The researchers found that a fifth of nurses admitted being involved in the assisted suicide of a patient.

But nearly half of these — 120 of 248 — also said there was no consent.

Of course, those are only the ones foolish enough to admit to homicide.

It is likely many nurses “under-reported” their involvement for fear of admitting an illegal activity, the study said.

Dr. Peter Saunders, director of Care Not Killing, is trying to keep euthanasia out of Britain’s already highly hazardous version of socialized medicine. As he remarks,

“We should take a warning from this that wherever you draw the line, people will go up to it and beyond it.”

Especially when the people involved are acting on behalf of increasingly unrestrained Big Government.

Down the slippery slope we slide. At the bottom is a world in which only those deemed valuable to The State are allowed to exist.
