Jodie Gilmore Biography

Title:
Freelance Writer
Position:
Con to the question "Should Euthanasia or Physician-Assisted Suicide Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“Even if Terri really did tell her husband she wouldn’t want to live in a disabled state, the immorality of euthanasia, and the dangers of trying to quantify ‘quality of life’ remain. Assisted suicide and euthanasia are two edges of the same glittering sword of death. Some people think that the ‘slippery slope’ argument against euthanasia…is overstating the situation…

People of faith who recognize God as the Supreme Being see the horror of euthanasia.

Legalized euthanasia is a certain recipe for moral disaster. The Schiavo case is not just a battle over one woman’s life. It is a battle between the powers of death and the Power of Life.”

“Court-Ordered Euthanasia,” The New American, Apr. 4, 2005
