Reader’s Comment of the Day: Euthanasia is a slippery slope to horror


In response to Laura Perrins: Katie Hopkins likes the idea of euthanasia vans. Liberals beware, Patsy wrote:

My mother endured a long slow decline and I often wished that the end would come. I looked very carefully at euthanasia during that period and concluded that if we go down this road it will be a slippery slope to getting rid of those who have become a burden or are not productive in life. 

Belgium has proved this, as they are now euthanasing children. Assisted dying is a polite way of allowing us to murder our fellow human beings. And don’t tell me its all about choice – it won’t be once you have opened the door to it. 

We need to encourage people to enjoy their life as long as they can and then have very good support and palliative care at the end of life. Love, support, care and medication – not killing.
