Death by Committee – Redux

Drew at Darn Floor has a new post about the Dutch and physician assisted death. I wrote about the Groningen Protocol and my disabled daughter here.

Drew has written about an English assisted suicide law and now the Dutch are considering assisted suicide for “people who may not be ill, but consider themselves as ‘suffering through living.'”

Drew’s last paragraph:

When someone feels his life is not worth living, it falls to us — fellow members of the human race — to show him that his life has value. It is abhorrent and repulsive that anyone — but especially doctors — would inform someone in despair that, no, his life is not worth living and he ought to just kill himself.
