Why euthanasia is a bad idea

(Original Title : Truthspeakers : Alex Schadenberg on euthanasia of “difficult patients” in the UK)

When my mother was gradually losing her memory, and sometimes wanting to die, my Dad knew he could not end her life for her.  I’m glad he had that depth of conviction, but I’m also glad that the laws of our land do not permit euthanasia or assisted suicide.  I hope that does not change, despite the recent ruling by Justice Lynn Smith.

In a recent blog post ( Killing patients who are difficult to manage is becoming common in the UK ), Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition describes what happens in a society where euthanasia comes to be seen as normal.  I don’t normally reblog, in fact I have only done so on one other occasion, but this post was too significant to ignore. Please take the time to click on the link and read it.

  1. Seniors in their later years are supposed to be very expensive to the medical system even though the people may have contributed throughout their life for health care.

    Euthanasia is one method used by socialized medicine to save money.

    In some cases seniors have been judicially murdered so their heirs could get the estate.

    It’s a very slippery slope.

    I like God’s hint for the correct response in Deuteronomy 30:19

    This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
