EUTHANASIA AND ASSISTED SUICIDE ARE
AN INEVITABLE SLIPPERY SLOPE.

A fair and just society cares for its most vulnerable. Once we open the doors to intentional killing, there is no logical stopping point. In countries such as Belgium and the Netherlands, euthanasia cases have increased a hundredfold and are not only permitted in cases of terminal illness. The law also allows it for patients with non-terminal conditions and for those who suffer with depression and other psychiatric illnesses. Children, with no lower age limit, can be euthanized in Belgium, and so can minors over 12 years of age in the Netherlands. Wherever euthanasia has been legalized, it has spiraled out of control.
