From Harvard: Bigotry, the Disabled and Slippery Slopes

The Philadelphia Inquirer has not replied to me nor, as far as I know, retracted its statement published on two consecutive days that in euthanasia, "Even a normal, healthy person would feel little discomfort after the first few days of thirst."

Perhaps they should read this article from the Harvard Crimson by a student with severe cerebral palsy. I agree with its author that judges, politicians and the mainstream media are driving healthcare down some very slippery slopes.

Of note towards lack of discomfort via starvation is this link cited in the Harvard Crimson article.
