Good grief, indeed. Actress Patricia Heaton is reacting to the news that Belgium has moved to expand its existing euthanasia laws to cover — minor children.

Steven Ertelt of LifeNews reports:

The Belgian Senate voted today 50-17 to extend euthanasia to children with disabilities, in a move pro-life advocates worldwide had been fearing would come and expand an already much-abused euthanasia law even further.

The vote today in the full Senate comes after a Senate committee voted 13-4 to allow minors to seek euthanasia under certain conditions and the measure also would extend the right to request euthanasia to adults with dementia.

The Netherlands already allows children over the age of 12 to request euthanasia with the consent of their parents.

The legislation now moves to Belgium’s House of Representatives for a vote. Heaton’s followers and others are equally shocked that minor children in Belgium might soon be able to request to be euthanized.

That is some headline: “Belgium: Senate Approves Measure Allowing Doctors to Euthanize Children.” That slope was awfully slippery, wasn’t it?
