Anti-euthanasia zealot Rebecca Hamilton writes in Patheos:
Doctors are rapidly becoming the new executioner class of our society.
Oh, good grief.
Executioner Class? Rapidly? Really?
And then there’s this:
Every single human being has an intrinsic value and right to life and we may not tamper with it. That is the order of things. The first premise. We must, as Christians, reason our actions from there.
Well, Rebecca, that’s a familiar argument, but it does not address the issue of the individual who wishes to end his or her life, but, through incapacity, is unable to do so. Your insistence that doctors may not grant that person his or her wish is about as bad an example of “tampering” with a life as I can imagine.
And, oh yes, it’s cruel too…
