Euthanasia campaign shows harsh consequences of its legalization

When Belgium approved euthanasia in 2002, it was applied only to a few terminally ill patients. It was used in 24 cases. Little by little, it has been extended to incurable patients, including adolescents. So in 2017, it was used on 2,309 people.

A similar situation arose in the Netherlands, where the number of cases rose from 2,000 in 2007 to almost 6,600 in 2017.

These dramatic statistics are highlighted in our Affirm Dignity – End Euthanasia campaign, which received favourable coverage from an influential Catholic news website.
