Euthanasia Infection Grows More Virulent

by Wesley J. Smith

I have a piece out today about how virulent the euthanasia pathogen has become–and how pervasively it is infecting Western society. From, “The Suicide Juggernaut:”

Advocates of assisted suicide tell two—no, three—lies that act as the honey to help the hemlock go down. The first is that assisted suicide/euthanasia is a strictly medical act. Second, they falsely assure us that medicalized killing is only for the terminally ill. Finally, they promise that strict guidelines will be rigorously enforced to protect against abuse.

I then prove the thesis, getting into–among other horrors–the proposed professional ”suicide facilitators” in Scotland, the Belgian leap off the moral cliff, Quebec’s plan to require all doctors to be complicit in euthanasia, and how Vermont will run assisted suicide on the honor system.

As I ask rhetorically at the end: What could go wrong?
