I agree with DW 1000%. I don't care if a doctor uses powerfull drugs to ease the pain and suffering of a human being youg or old. But to use euthanasia to kill either the young or old is plain wrong in my book. That would mean we have a Culture of Death. This is one of the problems in the Middle-East.dreamwalker said:Oh boy, this could get interesting. I'm not going to get too far into this discussion, but there is one thing I have to point out.
"Child euthanasia is illegal everywhere. Experts acknowledge, however, that doctors in the United States and elsewhere routinely euthanatize children, but that the practice is hidden.
"Measures that might marginally extend a child's life by minutes or hours or days or weeks are stopped. This happens routinely, namely, every day," Lance Stell, a staff ethicist at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, N.C., said this week."
It seems that they are equating a decision to give comfort care with euthanasia, and I don't see them as being the same.
