Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

"I" define a person as ________.

Via Zadok comes this frightening report from Belgium:

Mr Tommelein, whose party is a key member of Belgium's coalition government, has pledged to bring forward new legislative proposals extending euthanasia to children and old people suffering from such severe dementia that they are unable to choose for themselves.

And perhaps even more frightening:

There are more than 39 cases of euthanasia declared by doctors in Belgium every month, but the true figure is thought to be double that.
Euthanasia is currently permitted on infants and more than half of the Belgian babies who die before they are 12 months old have been killed by deliberate medical intervention.
In 16 per cent of cases parental consent was not considered.

Wow. So... when faced with a population crisis because of not having enough people being born to sustain the amount of federal social welfare programs, apparently Belgium's solution is to just kill off the people that they promised that those programs would protect, by trying to convince us that they aren't people at all (no, they don't say that outright - but that's effectively what their actions mean. Persons are those who live a "worthwhile" life. Humans who are too young, old or incapicated or who just have a "life unworthy of life" are not persons and should be killed to make way for those who are persons.)

Who's next to be determined useless, person-less, and marked for death - poor people who aren't pulling their weight in the Brave New World? Children who are slow learners and falling behind in class? People with a cleft lip (wait - that's already happening: Over 30 babies aborted in England alone)? Me? You?

As that old adage goes, referring to Nazi Germany:

They came for the Jews and I did nothing.
They came for the foreigners and I did nothing.
They came for the religious and I did nothing.
They came for the homosexuals and I did nothing.
They came for the children and I did nothing.
They came for the old and sick and I did nothing.
They came for my neighbors and I did nothing.
They came for me.
