Think about euthanasia carefully


I am a 14-year-old student in Credo Christian High School and I am writing on the subject of euthanasia. Even though I’m young, I still feel very strongly on the topic of abortion, the removal of unborn babies from the mother’s womb, and euthanasia, the act of putting to death painlessly or allowing to die according to the person's will.

I believe that euthanasia is interrupting the cycle of life. God has set a time for everyone to be born and to die but euthanasia is taking your life into your own hands instead of trusting that God is in control of everything, including our lives.

If we were to legalize euthanasia that could cause danger for the vulnerable and people who may not understand the impact that it could have on everyone around them, such as friends and family.

For everyone reading this please think through this and imagine if it happened to someone around you or someone you love and care about.
