A sick child who is not terminally ill is permitted to starve to death in the UK and the mother who perpetrated this crime against her own child is considered “compassionate?” We live in a culture of death where life is meaningless and death is dignified? Does that make us, as a culture, civilized?
There is no dignity in death. Ever. Death stalks us all and we can muddy the waters with euphemisms, but that doesn’t make death dignified. How long before these “brave” and “compassionate” champions of “death with dignity” legislate the value of someone’s quality of life? Who will be rendered obsolete tomorrow?
