Pro-life 'hero' unable to stop legalized killing

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow

Luxembourg has become the third nation to legalize doctor-assisted suicide. While that isn't good news to pro-lifers, there is a pro-life hero in the story.

The vote on the bill was 30-26, but it was stalled for some time. Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition explains. "The fact is that they've now gone to extreme measures even to carry this out because the Grand Duke of Luxembourg originally refused to sign the bill into law," he says. That forced Parliament to take drastic action to make it legal. "They went as far as to change their constitution in order to make sure that he didn't need to sign the bill into law for it to become law," says the pro-life activist.

Wow, the Parliament of Luxembourg amended Constitution by a vote of 56-0 (of the total of 60 Parliamentarians). That means even those who opposed the euthanasia bill itself, voted to amend the Constitution. And what did they actually amend? They took away the right of an unelected monarch (yes, for life) to veto laws that the Parliament passes.
