An article in the The Australian relates how Britain’s Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecology is reportedly calling on doctors to consider euthanasing “the sickest of newborns” which it says can disable healthy families.
The Sunday Times newspaper said today the proposal was in reaction to the number of such children who were surviving because of medical advances.
The college argued “active euthanasia” should be considered for the good of families, to spare parents the emotional burden and financial hardship of bringing up the sickest babies.
The proposal is contained in the college’s submission to an inquiry into ethical issues raised by the policy of prolonging life in newborn babies.
Euthanasia of newborns is illegal in Britain.
“A very disabled child can mean a disabled family,” the submission says.
“If life-shortening and deliberate interventions to kill infants were available, they might have an impact on obstetric decision-making, even preventing some late abortions, as some parents would be more confident about continuing a pregnancy and taking a risk on outcome.
“We would like the working party to think more radically about non-resuscitation, withdrawal of treatment decisions, the best interests test and active euthanasia as they are ways of widening the management options available to the sickest of newborns.”
This is where a multi-cultural diverse secular society goes. If God is not in the equation, then life isn’t sacred and you can do whatever you want.
We must prevent the ACLU and other secular-humanists from converting American society into a secular society, and we must end multi-culturism in this country. Immigrants must be assimilated into American society and hold American values. It is the belief in Judeo-Christian values, including the sanctity of life, that makes America a moral and great country.
