Euthanasia is a much debated topic. There are those who think of it as a "compassionate means to end pain and suffering" and those who believe that we should not be the ones who can decide who lives or dies and/or determine a life's worth. The growing concern is that the definition of quality of life and pain and suffering is so very broad and varies with opinion that by using these concepts as a validation for Euthanasia we are allowing ourselves to be vulnerable to the possibility that anyone can determine whether our life is no longer worth living.

This was the case for Terri Schiavo. 5 years ago today, Terri Schindler Schiavo, pictured below, died by order of the courts.

For those who may not know the FULL story behind Terri's tragic death please visit the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation website. We must never forget what happened to Terri and we must fight for others like her. It's not enough to be simply pro-life. We must be WHOLE life and respect life from it's earliest beginnings to it's most fragile end. There is no life more valuable or less valuable than the next no matter what your race, sex or background is. ALL life should be protected.

Here is a great video of a young girl who tackled the topic of Euthanasia for her 8th grade speech class. She makes some excellent points and proves to be quite passionate for such a young age.

Luke Gormally said, "Society's prohibition of intentional the cornerstone of law and social relationships. It protects each of us impartially, embodying the belief that all are equal."
Gormally also gives seven arguments of why Euthanasia should not be legalized. Read those seven reasons why Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide should not be legalized HERE.
