Society tries to brainwash us into believing that things such as abortion and euthanasia are not only empowering but also merciful and if we disagree then we are not only ignorant but cruel. How dare us impose on “women’s rights”; how dare us discredit her life or tell her what do with “her body”. How dare us prolong the suffering of these poor people who are already dying.
Well, if euthanasia is okay, then so is suicide. And if abortion is okay, then so is murder. Come on, Society, stop pretending that one is okay and one isn’t; either you cross the line or you don’t. You can’t have your feet in two places at once. You can’t say murder is wrong and abortion isn’t. You can’t say suicide is cowardly but euthanasia is freeing.
Today many have the mentality of beasts; it is all about survival of the fittest for them. And yet, many aren’t even aware that that is what is going on, but it is. Even if we were to accept euthanasia as merciful, it could easily be abused. Abuse is everywhere, especially in the medical field, and who is to say this poor woman whose husband wants her dead since he doesn’t want to care for her anymore, isn’t going to be given euthanasia solely due to her guardian’s decision and not her own? So many people in this world think they have a right to say who lives or dies whether it be a baby or somebody who is sick. Most turn their eyes from that harsh reality and go on still claiming that euthanasia and abortion are good choices, but when it's them, will they still say their guardian has a right to kill them?
Our society is not kind or empowering when it imposes its verdict of death on those who are weak and small, who may not yet have a voice of their own. We are meant to love. We are meant to treasure life, to be a voice to the voiceless, a crutch to the crippled, and a friend to the brokenhearted.
