Elderly and Embryos
I have blogged on this before but in our study of Evangelium Vitae last night we touched on the topic of euthanasia again. Here's a link to an excellent article regarding euthanasia and the recent release of Dr. Kevorkian. The "futile care theory" is spawning the creation of "ethics" committees in hospitals which may be more accurately called "Auschwitz Welcome Wagons." When the doctors perceive that the patient's quality of life is poor they now consult these "Welcome Wagons" to badger the families into relenting and letting them stop care. I understand the need to stop aggressive measures when death is imminent and the treatment is over-burdensome, however, I have seen fluids and feedings stopped because a person with dementia was judged to not "measure up," to use Dr. Kevorkian's terminology.
Once we start killing life at the beginning, it becomes so much easier to hasten death at the end.
Germany still has the graveyards as the one seen above where the elderly and disabled were interred after being euthanized.
Let's face it, elderly and embryos don't look good in two piece bathing suits nor do they contribute to the GNP. So where's the quality there? God have mercy on us. Lord Jesus, Give us understanding of the inviolability of life.
