The very thought of legalised assisted suicide and or euthanasia both saddens and terrifies me.
“It is hard to argue that each of us possesses equal human worth to anyone else, when society still widely views us as inferior."
On the one hand we have a 'let's take what we can get away with' approach while the other is about getting a foot in the door.
"If you love your parents, respect your children, care for your society and think compassionately about your world then it is time to open your heartens when a jurisdiction legalises killing or, as it is called, euthanasia."
Did no-one think that many people in the disability community object strongly, as we do, to all this death peddling? Did they care, anyway?
Physicians who care for patients should not order and direct their death through assisted suicide.
At the very least, these matters of inequity, ableism and access should be addressed first. Then maybe come back and talk about making people dead.
