As Canada gets ready to pass a law legalizing doctor-assisted suicide (and as Massachusetts continues to see attempts to do the same), Belgium is warning us not to open that Pandora’s box.
The video is a clip from an upcoming documentary film, Vulnerable – The Euthanasia Deception. It’s one of a series of clips the filmmakers will be releasing online in the next week ahead of the release of the documentary itself.
In the video, Belgians talk about the impact of the 2002 legalization of the practice in their country, including the deaths of loved ones, sometimes without their knowledge and sometimes without the voluntary request of the patient. Now they want the rest of the world to know that assisted suicide and euthanasia aren’t compassion; they’re the ultimate abuse of the vulnerable.
