The sick, disabled and elderly are in danger because of our growing lack of respect for the dignity of each human person. Every year elderly patients are killed through physician-assisted suicide. A “quality-of-life” ethic is affecting our medical care so that medical decisions are increasingly based on someone else’s judgment of the patient’s quality of life. Obama’s new health-care law gives the power of medical decision-making to government bureaucrats. Euthanasia is being practiced, yet most Americans are unaware of it.
