April 4, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Canadian Paediatric Society - bioethics committee, released a statement on April 1 concerning the withholding and withdrawing of artificial nutrition and hydration.
The statement is similar to the statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Both statements approve the withholding or withdrawing of nutrition and hydration (fluids and food) from infants who may not be dying.
The Canadian statement allows euthanasia by dehydration (slow euthanasia) of infants with cognitive or other disabilities based on a “quality of life” assessment and with consent.
I refer to this as euthanasia by dehydration because there is a clear difference between withholding or withdrawing fluids and food from a person who is actually dying and nearing death and a person who is not otherwise dying. Click "Here" for the complete story.
We really need to get down on our knees and humble ourselves before the Lord. God have mercy on these doctors and any other person who would agree with such a barbaric attitude towards human life. This sounds like eugenics to me. Let us allow the "fit" and "normal" to live, but not those who have disabilities. God loves all His little children.
