Why Euthanasia STOP ?

  • Imprimer

The law decriminalizing euthanasia in Belgium was passed in May 2002. This law creates a framework for a patient to make a request for euthanasia and physician to access it, under certain conditions, without committing a criminal offense.

Today, new legislative proposals to extend the scope of the law for minors, the insane ... are being discussed in Parliament. Most political parties seem determined to see these proposals of enlargement lead to conclusion.

This enthusiasm is not shared by all citizens. Unfortunately, access to their traditional media is not always easy. This website is presented as a public expression space, open to all who wish to make a discordant voice.
