I want to have a detailed discussion of euthanasia.
I think this is an important point at which faith and public life meet. It is also a worthwhile discussion for Advent. If we are awaiting the day when we either go to Christ or He comes again, then we need to consider what we want our lives to reflect.
One of the many ways in which Christians are blessed is that the burden of “deciding” when to kill ourselves is lifted off of us. We know that our lives — every minute of our lives — are valuable and that they matter in the eternal scheme. No Christian who has any pretensions of following Christ will murder a human being.
Euthanasia is the denial of the most basic human right there is. It is medical murder.
Here are a couple of videos to watch and think about as we begin this discussion.
