Euthanasia ≠ Murder

Christians like to end their euthanasia debates with But it is murder. No it is not murder. It is physician assisted suicide. The motive is different. The means is different. What it seeks to avoid is different. The consent is different. The legality is different. Who initiates it is different. The amount of life it cuts is different. Murder is unlawfully killing someone. As soon as physician assisted suicide is made legal, it ceases to become murder in the eyes of the law. Christians are deliberately trying to mislead people, much the way they try to mislead in abortion debates by referring to single cells as babies and third term abortions as partial birth abortions.
