Can we please stop kidding ourselves?
More than one medical professional is under scrutiny as a possible person of interest as Louisiana's attorney general investigates whether hospital workers resorted to euthanasia in the chaotic days after Hurricane Katrina shattered New Orleans, a source familiar with the investigation has told CNN.This is one of the most disturbing things I've ever read. Why? Because we are now euphemistically calling murder "euthanasia." Euthanasia was a euphemism to begin with. "Assisted suicide" was deemed to poll poorly, so they re-dubbed it euthanasia. Now, we are looking at a situation that was clearly not voluntary on the part of the deceased, and calling it euthanasia simply because the victims were old and possibly approaching death of natural causes.
