The Purposeful Killing of Human Life

The Purposeful Killing of Human Life

ProLifeCorner – 2-2-2017 – by Chris Munda – Euthanasia goes by other names, for example, mercy killing, assisted suicide, easy death, etc..  You can call it whatever name you like, but it still means only one thing-the purposeful killing of a human life.

The high court felt that available treatments need not be taken. If Ludwig van Beethoven lived today in Canada, can you see how he might be at risk of being assisted in his suicide?  Continue reading
