**1. What is your personal view of Euthanasia? **
False compassion and crocodile tears. If a teenage boy was suffering from heartbreak no one would euthanize him, but if a disabled person had a heartbreak they speak of “quality of life”. Is that saying that suffering makes a life less valuable? These same people go out preaching egalitarianism.
**2. Does your view differ between voluntary (consent) and involuntary (without consent) Euthanasia? **
Voluntary is when the treatment of society creates a victim and solves the problem by killing him. Do you think someone wants to die if society can create a good living standard for the marginalized? As an example, no girl has loved me as my disabilities got worse. Also I can’t go anywhere because of lack of accessibility. I am almost a hermit. Euthanasia is choosing to kill a person rather than addresses the root causes of why he is suicidal.
Involuntary is fascism, plain and simple.
3. Does the teachings of the Catholic Church influence your view?
**4. What particular moral teachings and values have Catholicism taught you within the topic of Euthanasia? **
Actions speak louder than words. You can’t claim to love someone and kill them in the same way you can’t claim to be open to God’s will and use contraception.
5. Have these teachings taken into account the common good of all people?
6. Do you believe the Catholic Church addresses the issue of Euthanasia enough?
Not nearly enough. Mostly deals with abortion, but not enough with other victims of the culture of death.
**7. Do you believe that Catholicism has influenced Australia’s view of Euthanasia? **
I don’t know. Don’t think so because I read that Australia blocks disabled immigration. Sounds more utilitarian than Catholic.
8. Are there places people can go to receive help if they are considering the Euthanasia?
Don’t know. But increasingly countries are “helping” people die.
**9. If someone you knew was thinking of partaking in Euthanasia (legally or illegally), what would you say to them? **
There can be no ressurection without the passion. Glory requires suffering. Christ taught us how we must have patience amidst great suffering. Every suffering we can offer to Christ to our profit.
