IF YOU REALLY CARE, YOU’LL END IT.

• Greek expression Euthanatos (eu = good,


thanatos = death)

• Meaning:
“Termination of the life of a person
suffering from a painful and incurable
medical condition.” 2
The New International Dictionary defines Mercy
Killing and Euthanasia as “Painless, Peaceful
Death.”

3
• Euthanasia is distinguished from suicide by
the necessary participation of a third party,
typically either a physician or family member.

• The Nazis introduced legal euthanasia,


approved by doctors, for selected people
such as the severely mentally disabled, on
the grounds that they had a life which was
not worth living.

PATIENTS’ RIGHTS
• Patients have the right to refuse any
medical treatment.

A doctor who treats a patient against his


or her express wishes can be charged
with assault.

Educate people as to their right to


refuse treatment.
13
The professionals recognize that if pain
is controlled, as it can be in virtually all
cases, very few terminally ill people ask
to be put to death.

Experience in Holland tells us that


voluntary Euthanasia can quickly
become involuntary euthanasia.
