First one should note that a challenge to the Belgian euthanasia law, sent by the groups Pro Vita and Jurivie to the European Court of Human Rights, still awaits a response.
The Vatican recently issued the French version of a “lexicon of ambiguous and controversial terms concerning the family, life and ethical questions”. The chapter devoted to euthanasia is supposed to contain the following:
“Its development seems to stem from an “international lobby” inspired by the practices of Nazi Germany…The pro-euthanasia movement re-emerged in the 1980s, using slogans of “compassion”, then of “a dignified death” and more recently “the right to die”.
ADMD will verify the original text and, if this information proves accurate, will take appropriate action.
