Ethics


Christianity is the ultimate example of argument by repeated assertion.

Christians and Euthanasia

Ask a Christian why they oppose euthanasia and they will give you one of three answers:

  1. God owns you. You have no right to destroy his property.
  2. God does not like it and will torture you in eternity.
  3. People will be killed who do not want to be.

The first two reasons amount to Christians forcing their religious superstitions on others. Unfortunately, law makers are often Christian and see no problem with this. The third reason is bogus. When euthanasia is legal there are several doctors and bureaucrats overseeing. When euthanasia is illegal it happens anyway without oversight with a wink.
