The organs of people killed by euthanasia in Belgium are being harvested for transplant surgery, a report revealed yesterday.Related. "Men doing fiendish things used to prove the existence of evil. Now it casts doubt on the existence of God."
A quarter of all lung transplants in Belgium are from people killed by lethal injection. [...]
Dr Peter Saunders, of Care Not Killing... ‘Given that half of all euthanasia cases in Belgium are involuntary it must be only a matter of time before the organs are taken from patients who are euthanised without their consent.
‘The matter of fact way the retrieval process is described in the paper is particularly chilling and shows the degree of collaboration that is necessary between the euthanasia team and the transplant surgeons - prep them for theatre next to the operating room, then kill them and wheel them in for organ retrieval. All in a day's work in Brave New Belgium.’
