Is Assisted Suicide Compassionate?

A friend says to you, “People who are suffering unbearably deserve our compassion. That’s why they should be able to end their lives if they choose.”

What would you say?

In a brand new “What Would You Say?” video, my colleague Brooke McIntire tackles a very difficult issue: doctor assisted suicide.

First, as Brooke says, assisted suicide robs people of compassion by robbing them of care. Second, we’ve seen over and over that the so-called “right to die” inevitably leads to a duty to die. Third, it destroys trust in doctors, and finally, terminal diagnoses are sometimes wrong.

Sharing stats and stories, the video will equip you to talk about a sinister practice that is masked in compassion. Much is at stake, not just for those who end their lives, but for all the ill and vulnerable.
