“But we thought we were supposed to throw them away”

From Expatica:

Two doctors and a maternity nurse have been arrested over the death of a premature baby boy at the weekend.

The baby, who was six weeks premature and weighing only 1.25 kg, was born in a Namur hospital at 4am on Friday but died between 8 and 9am.

His parents had refused medical efforts to keep him alive, fearing that the child would be handicapped.

The three medical staff arrested now face charges of "infanticide" and the "voluntary and premeditated homicide of a new-born child."

They include the 40-year-old midwife, here 28 year old assistant and a 64-year-old gynaecologist.

Experts say the infant, who was breathing, could have survived with medical intervention and an inquiry has already been opened.

This happened in Brussels, Belgium. Both abortion and euthanasia are legal in Belgium. Right-to-life.org reports that all Belgian hospitals, including Catholic hospitals, have been forced to allow euthanasia.

When you pretend some life is protected while other life is not, is it any wonder people get confused as to where the imaginary “moral” line has been drawn. All life is sacred. Both abortion and euthanasia are murder.

Dear God, how can anyone stand by and do nothing while a baby dies?!

Thus is socialist Europe. And Liberals want us to be more like them.
