Arguments against Euthanasia

  1. Euthanasia is selling death, not life
  2. No matter what you call it—euthanasia, assisted suicide, or something else—it is wrong
  3. Understand the language of promoters of euthanasia, and you can understand how to fight against them
  4. Death by dehydration is ugly, painful, and wrong. Terri Schiavo’s story makes that point
  5. Stealth euthanasia: Using palliative care and hospice to kill people prematurely (pdf)
  6. Assisted Suicide: You Can Life Without It” (pdf)
  7.  Killing to Heal? Ethical Problems with DCD (Donation after Circulatory Death) (pdf)
  8. Are Organ Donors Truly Dead? (pdf)
  9. Train young people in these arguments by using the Culture of Life Studies Program’s unit study “Without Mercy: An Introduction to Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide, and Threats to the Medically Vulnerable” 
  10. Life, Life Support and Death” booklet. This is an in-depth examination of the use of life support machines and why the crucial difference between ordinary and extraordinary care is so important to avoid imposed death for a loved one.
