End of Life and Personhood
Our society has quickly progressed down the slippery slope of assisted suicide and euthanasia to a culture that dehumanizes the elderly, disabled, and medically vulnerable. Though it is plagued with corruption, greed, and suffering, physician-assisted death is promoted as humane, compassionate, and of course, an exercise of rights and choice. If this rhetoric sounds familiar, it should. The abortion and “death with dignity” industries are rotten fruits from the very same root. Whether born or unborn, “life unworthy of life” has become the mantra.
