On 21 June, which they celebrate as the “International Humanism Day”, the Humanistisch–Vrijzinnige Vereniging (Liberal Humanist Association) has awarded its “Liberal Humanism Prize 2015” to Dr. Wim Distelmans, “an eminent humanist who has demonstrated in his life and work of a genuine and sustained liberal humanist engagement.”
The eminent humanist is a trained physician who is pushing euthanasia to its extreme consequences. He acquired notoriety when he killed healthy but depressed Godelieva De Troyer because she wanted to die.
De Troyer wasn’t Distelmans’ only “liberal humanist” achievement. Further victims of his humanist activities include a trasgendered person upset at the outcome of sex change surgery and deaf twins who were losing their eyesight.
