Euthanasia Should be Private
Why is there even a euthanasia debate? What would give someone the idea they had the right to override someone else’s end-of-life decisions? What would give strangers the notion they were in a better position to decide than the terminally ill patients? The anti-euthanasia forces are fueled by religious fanaticism. They think they have a god-given right to impose their religious superstitions on others. They imagine there is merciful, perfect god, like a cosmic hotelier, who will be horrendously offended if you check out a couple of weeks early from Hotel Misery, who will then torture you in eternity for insulting him. Further, they assert that their cosmic slave master god owns all humans (Christian and otherwise), and therefore any sort of euthanasia is illegally destroying their god’s property. They say this crap with a straight face. There is no evidence for this paranoia, but that does not stop these fruitcakes being 100% certain it is so. They are like adults terrified of bogeymen hiding under the bed. We have freedom of religion in Canada and the USA. This should give us constitutional protection from religious interference from these ninnies. The problem is even the learned Supreme Court justices unconsciously harbour these nutty ideas causing them to rule in favour of the religious busybodies.~ Roedy (born: 1948-02-04 age: 66)

The Ignorant Making Decisions for the Informed
Christians, like Stephen Harper, imagine they are qualified to make end-of-life decisions for others, even when those others would rather make them for themselves. There are two serious problem with this:
~ Roedy (born: 1948-02-04 age: 66)
- These Christians have never been seriously ill. They have not the faintest inkling of what unbearable means.
- Their rules are based not on compassion or common sense, but remnants of delusions of a vengeful deity from iron age myths.
