Topic: Euthanasia

Euthanasia is a word derived from the Greek which means “good death.” It refers to mercy killing. Canada has been practicing euthanasia for a few years now. Are they planning to extend such mercy-killing to children? Bioethicist and author Wesley J. Smith warns about potential plans being made for our northern neighbor to do just that. In an article in National Review, Smith writes, “In refusing to oppose legalization or, indeed, to make even one substantive argument against its moral propriety, the society implicitly endorses a policy that would allow sick and disabled children to be killed.” Wesley J. Smith, a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss euthanasia and children.
