In a classic example of how euthanasia is being normalized and mainstreamed, this video regarding a Belgium couple gives many of the standard talking points used to promote euthanasia.
- the ability to control not only your life, but your death
- be involved in your funeral arrangements
- no need to suffer unnecessarily
- no need to draw other people into your problems
The academic who is interviewed points out that this couple ending their lives was “an important signal breaking taboo. So that his can be viewed as a normal way of dying and viewed that way by the community at large.” He also acknowledges that it is happening “more and more;” noting that “non-terminal partners also have the option” to end their lives.
He then chillingly states: “This is just a beautiful example…”
He’s right. It is a beautiful example of a culture of death as it seeps into a society.
