Euthanasia – And the Decrease of Physicians?

I posted this a short while ago.  I realized after posting that I miss the most important piece – That the great physician, Jesus, came to heal our brokenness, including that of physicians who have lost their way, thinking killing is better than caring.

Compared to several years ago, Physicians seem to be losing their position of respect.  Doctors used to be the main source of guidance  looked to  whenever someone was sick.  Now, more and more, other practitioners are taking their place.   It is becoming more common to speak of medical doctors negatively.   Doctors seem to be losing ground in their battle with governments over financial renumeration and benefits. read more

I am compelled to comment on my recent blog posting, Assisted Death – Conscience Rights, Bystanders & Responsibility.

In this post, I began by suggesting there was a similarity between the Holocaust of WWII, the killing of unborn by abortion, and now the killing of sick and suffering.  I also quoted Martin Luther as an example of following one’s conscience, in spite of great risk of personal harm.[1]  Although, I think Martin Luther’s stand against the organized church of his day had merit, I think my choice of examples was poor. read more
