There are two kinds of euthanasia one being active the other passive.

One physician, "after studying the bone scan (world-renowned forensic pathologist Michael Baden) posed an explosive theory on Fox News Channel's "On the Record" hosted by Greta van Susteren. reported Baden, who is co-director of the Investigative Unit of New York State Police in Albany and former chief medical examiner for New York City, ruled out potassium imbalance and a heart attack as factors in Terri's mysterious collapse and pointed to head trauma and bone injuries as a more likely cause."

However, it may be argued euthanasia has emerged with the purpose of reclaiming that right.

With current organ transplant networks, a patient gets "on the list" for an organ transplant and waits till they arrive at the front of the line and when an organ is available, they get it. Under Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel's system, the elderly could be prevented from ever getting an organ no matter how long they wait! Using this system, the elderly would die, whereas with the current system, they could wait just like any other person and get an organ when it is available.


The killing of another human being is morally wrong and unacceptable.

And euthanasia is promoted as a viable means of solving various social and financial problems.

"Although the "managed care" industry is quick to defend its actions with high-sounding justifications, their claims break down under examination. For example, can they really support the argument that the effects of "managed care" are necessary for the "good of society." What does this mean? Who should decide this? Can this be appropriately determined by the entity who stands to benefit the most from an economic definition of this "good?"


Is Euthanasia Wrong - Life Zone

Robert Woods Johnson Foundation is still making grants and supporting the work to change how Americans think about dying and how they die. They are funding the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization's "Caring Connections" program. This is the successor to the Euthanasia Society as we've seen.

The writer confuses "specialists in end-of-life care" with those who promote hastened death at the end-of-life. Even the founder of the hospice movement, Dame Cicely Saunders, would not be considered a "specialist in end-of-life care" if one has to favor hastening death or imposing death outright. There are professors of palliative medicine who strongly opposed the medical killing of Terri Schiavo. It is revealing that the culture of death specialists view those who sought to protect Terri Schiavo from being medically killed as forces opposed to "progress." Their goal is obvious: imposing death on patients like Terri should be normalized and a regular part of end-of-life care services! They say that keeping the severely disabled alive is to be discouraged. Physician Frank J. Mongillo III, M.D. says that ", and he is only one of many physicians who know this can be the case.

Euthanasia right or wrong — Klon

That's the pattern: use language that many can agree with while slipping in an agenda item. People like the idea of their wishes being honored at the end-of-life and euthanasia advocates have capitalized on that. However, the "honoring of patient wishes" is tainted by efforts to make sure treatment is not provided if the hospital or hospice don't agree. "Ethics committees" can override the patient's wishes. Byock was also co-founder of the successor organization of the Euthanasia Society of America: Partnership for Caring. It's starting to make sense now, isn't it?

Then we got into animal euthanasia

".... The two foundations are not going to abandon the field totally: The Soros project plans to act as a resource center to encourage other donors to support death-and-dying causes; and Weisfeld said the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation plans to follow the field and watch for backsliding. From the dying patient's point of view, work is still needed on items as simple as convincing doctors that they should immediately prescribe anti-anxiety medication when they deliver a terminal diagnosis, said Laura Schmidt-Pizzarello."
