Who’s Life Is It Anyway?

Why is euthanasia everyone’s business but the terminally ill’s? Media interview everyone with a strong opinion but the terminally ill — religious cranks, young healthy Catholic doctors, clergymen… Nearly all terminally ill people want it as an option with safeguards. Why does everyone else treat them as if they were incapable of a rational decision? Why do they think they have the right to override the wishes of a terminally ill person, especially when they know nothing at all of the particular circumstances?
