Britain’s "Back Door" Euthanasia Bill

The Brits have proposed legislation that many are calling a "back door to legal euthanasia." The Telegraph report is worth a look. There’s some scarey stuff in the bill deserving of the Catholic criticism it’s received--provisions allowing "doctors to carry out medical research on mentally confused patients without their full consent" to name one.

Meanwhile, here in the States, it seems the Hemlock Society finds the whole Terri Schiavo case to offend its sense of dignity, and has started a media blitz to raise our "right-to-die" awareness. Always good to be reminded that the right to life was never one of those inalienable rights.
