IV needle assisted suicideWill governments with legalized euthanasia require it for the common good?

Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition tells OneNewsNow two Scottish doctors have published "Cost analysis of medical assistance in dying in Canada," a study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal that takes a look at medical aid in dying in Canada.

"They are arguing that assisted suicide saves money for the healthcare system, but it also provides more organs for organ donations; therefore, we should be doing this. We should be encouraging this," Schadenberg relays. "They continued throughout this study to say that we're not actually promoting euthanasia, but of course … it's a lie.”

That reminds him of the 1920 book, Allowing the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Life, that doctors of Hitler's time were required to read. It promoted and justified euthanizing people, such as the Jews, for the "common good."

Schadenberg, Alex (EPC)"It's very similar, actually, because it's justifying these things based on cost and based on efficacy to the nation, meaning that, you know, you're going to get a lot more healthy organs out of this if you allow this, so this is a good thing to do also," Schadenberg poses.

But he is concerned that that philosophy is leading society down the path to forced euthanasia -- killing people in the name of compassion when it really just means saving money and benefiting others with their organs.
