LETTER: Euthanasia support based on emotion

Some politicians still justify euth­an­asia being legal. The arguments they use are based not on reason, but on emotion.

They avoid defining the words they use. The term “assisted dying” is intentionally confusing. It sounds like being nice to someone who is already passing away.

Palliative caring for the dying and disabled can be expensive – in terms of money, time, love and compassion.

Do we care enough to make that effort – consistently refusing to ­resort to intentional killing?
