"Embracing death as a medical solution to human problems is nothing new."

Bobby Schindler, brother of Terri Schiavo, has an essay on the growing acceptance of killing in medical ethics.


Truly, the desensitization in our culture has become so intense that those who compare the dehumanization of disabled people to the atrocities in Germany prior to the Holocaust are now labeled fanatics. Yet, the very same people that were eliminated in Nazi Germany–the cognitively disabled–are being eliminated now for the very same reasons. They are seen as inferior. Burdens. Not quite complete humans... has become apparent to me that the death culture is not only winning, it’s gaining broad support. 
Clearly, the reasons are out there for one and all to see. Health, life and longevity have become direct threats to profitability and the bottom line. That's why I fear those behind this death movement will not only continue, but it will intensify.
