Belgium’s King Phillippe signs child euthanasia bill into law

Yesterday, the Belgian king signed into law a controversial bill allowing for the euthanasia of children. While it seemed unlikely that King Phillippe would do anything but sign the bill, there was worldwide controversy surrounding the law, including harsh condemnation from the American Academy of Pediatrics, which rightfully said that this law makes children expendable.

None of the controversy and outrage from around the world mattered, though. Children can now legally be killed in Belgium, no matter their age.
