A great editorial in the Montreal Gazette today, since Quebec is holding hearings about euthanasia these days:
Support for mercy killing is usually couched in terms of dignity, which seems bitterly ironic since it’s hard to think of a more extreme denial of dignity than killing, however benevolent the motive.
I’m very pleased this is their editorial position. So rational, logical and life affirming. From this position, however, it’s only logical to say the same of the unborn. We don’t kill to solve our problems, no matter how big those problems might be.by
