Euthanasia:  Should death be a choice?

Fifteen-year-old Erin Newton recently participated in a ‘Hot Topics’ session on Euthanasia at the Shalimar Student Centre. The centre is run by the Prelature of Opus Dei.

In these weekly sessions, now held via Zoom, controversial topics are discussed allowing the young female participants to reflect on the moral and philosophical issues. For more information on how interested girls can participate in ‘Hot Topics’ call 221-1032 or email shalimarsc@gmail.com.

Euthanasia is intentionally killing a person to relieve pain and suffering. It is a bad practice that is becoming common. We, as human beings, should not be choosing death. There are many reasons to live even when suffering and in pain. The mere fact that we are still alive today tells us that we still have a reason to be here and we must not take the chance of life and possibility from ourselves nor anyone else. We need to fight against euthanasia.
