Recently I read the Sydney Morning Herald and an article on euthanasia. It seems Belgium legalized it in 2002, but recent “newly minted” legislation would extend the provision to children, people suffering from dementia and “other diseases of the brain”, according to the article from the December 28-29 edition of the paper.
Reading along I came across two incidents of recent controversy in that country. Here is one of them, as printed in the paper.
“An anorexic woman who had been sexually abused by her psychiatrist, the renowned sexologist and eating disorder specialist Walter Vandereycken, was subsequently euthanized by a fellow psychiatrist.”
Apparently, some 47% of the deaths that occur by euthanasia, as found in a study published by the British Medical Journal, are not reported.
As a Scientologist, I accept and apply to the best of my ability, the Code of a Scientologist and hereby publicly decry this abuse of life by the psychiatric profession in Belgium, for its heinous and manifestly physically damaging practice of killing patients it deems not worthy of life.
