Welcome To The Dark Side Part 3

We  are  continuing  our  adventure  through  the  Land  of  Lies  Teens  For  Life  website.  What  will  be  discussing  today?  Hot  Topics:  Euthanasia
I  will  say  this  right  now:
What  in  the  flying  fuck  does  abortion  have  to  do  with  euthanasia?
I  need  an  answer,  people.

Euthanasia is the intentional killing by act or omission of a dependent human being for his or her alleged benefit, and over the years it has been one of the favorite tools of those who think society is better off when we take active steps to kill the poor, the disabled, the elderly, or the “unwanted”. Today the debate over euthanasia most commonly revolves around the issue of physician-assisted suicide. 

Well,  I'm  pro-choice  but  I  find  euthanasia  to  be  wrong.  Are  you  saying  abortion  is  euthanasia?  I  so  confusedz.

Euthanasia may be thought of in several different forms:
Voluntary euthanasia: This is what happens when the person who is killed has requested to be killed. Often these requests are made under severe depression or emotional distress – situations that could easily change with proper care and treatment.

And  abortion  has  to  do  with  this  how?

Involuntary euthanasia: This occurs when a the person who is killed made an expressed wish to the contrary. There are many in the world today who argue that the government could save money by actively euthanizing the elderly, claiming that the “usefulness” of these persons does not justify their medical expenses. 

Again,  abortion?  And  yes,  I  do  find  this  wrong.

Assisted suicide: Someone provides an individual with the information, guidance, and means to take his or her own life with the intention that they will be used for this purpose. When it is a doctor who helps another person to kill themselves it is called “physician assisted suicide.”

I  won't  even   mention  the  "a"  word  again.  What  are  they  trying  point  out  in  this?  That  someone  suffering  from  a  deadly  disease  who  asks  their  doctor  to  help  them  kill  themselves  is  ALWAYS,  ALWAYS  bad?

Euthanasia By Direct Action: Think of this as intentionally causing a person’s death by performing an action such as by giving a lethal injection. 

I'm  thinking  of  The  Giver  and  North  Korea.

Euthanasia By Omission: This is intentionally causing death by not providing necessary and ordinary (usual and customary) care or food and water. 

So  if  a  parent  neglects  a  child  of  food  and  care  they're  euthanizing  the  kid?

Euthanasia opens dangerous doors because it is man playing God. Consider the story of the German family who requested to Adolf Hitler that their disabled son be “put to sleep”. This killing became the the catalyst for the Nazi euthanasia program, providing the rationale for a secret Nazi decree that led to “mercy killings” of at least 275,000 mentally and physically handicapped people. The first child died because hi sfamily wanted their son dead, but most of the other children who were subsequently euthanized were forcibly taken from their parents to be killed. 
Men  (and  women)  play  God  all  the  time,  so  there  are  lots  of  dangerous  doors  you  aren't  writing  about  here.  And  why  bring  up  the  Nazis  who  both  forced  abortion  on  pregnant  women  working  as  sex  slaves  in  concentration  camps  but  also  had  legal  abortion  (although  women  were  shamed  for  having  one)?  There  are  lots  of  forms  of  euthanasia  on  Earth  and  you  choose  the  Nazis.  *Sigh*   I'll  just  continue  researching  North  Korea.

And  what  did  I  learn  from  this?
Absolutely  nothing  at  all.
