International Chair - Euthanasia Prevention Coalition
New Hampshire State representative, Michael Cahill (Dem) offered euthanasia as a solution during the budget debate last week. Cahill stated:
"Since we are refusing to raise revenues to fund services for the disabled, for example, have you looked at euthanasia?"The chair responded:
"The member is out-of-order. The question is not appropriate. The member will be seated."Cahill may be making a point related to budget cuts. Watch the youtube video below.
In September 2008, Baroness Warnock, (UK) stated that people with dementia had a duty to die.
In the book, Freedom to Die, (1998) Derek Humphry, co-founder of the Hemlock Society, now known as Compassion & Choices, and Mary Clement stated (page 313):
“In the final analysis, economics, not the quest for broadened individual liberties or increased autonomy, will drive assisted suicide to the plateau of acceptable practice.”Legalized euthanasia and assisted suicide will be abused and will lead to a duty to die for people at the most vulnerable time of their life.
Euthanasia and assisted suicide is not about caring, it is about killing.
