Euthanasia Goes Beyond its Intended Victims

Canada legalized euthanasia.  True to the predictions I and other pro-life leaders made, euthanasia is a slippery slope that is swallowing other victims in its path.  Some Canadian physicians are now refusing to medically treat suicide victims because euthanasia is legal.  The problem is so serious Quebec’s College of Physicians issued a bulletin.  The organization condemned the lack of resuscitation of suicide patients when treatment could save them with no or little aftereffects.  Intervention, the group says, “rests on principles of doing good and not doing harm.  It would be negligent not to act.”  Euthanasia is a cancer.  It harms more than just its intended victims by creating a society that devalues human life.  It will be impossible to control its cancerous, corrosive effect.
