Joni Eareckson Tada Urges Prayer as Belgium May Legalize Euthanasia for Disabled Children

I am dismayed that the Belgium Parliament may soon legalize euthanasia for children with disabilities. The irony is that this same parliament in 2009 ratified the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities (CRPD).
Article 10 in the CRPD clearly declares, "States Parties reaffirm that every human being has the inherent right to life and shall take all necessary measures to ensure its effective enjoyment by persons with disabilities on an equal basis with others."
How can, on one hand, Belgian legislators insist that people with disabilities have 'the inherent right to life' yet extend a so-called right to die to not merely adults but, shockingly, to minors who feel burdened by their disability?
