word euthanasia is defined as: “The act or practice of killing individuals (as
persons or domestic animals) that are hopelessly sick or injured for reasons of
mercy” (Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, 1979). Mercy killing has not only
gained a foothold in certain areas of Europe, but also here in the United
States. The subject has become so commonplace that an Internet search will
result in 355,000 hits. These sites are dedicated to both sides of this most
serious discussion. One strongly recommend site is: http://www.euthanasia.com/.
This site is one of many devoted to combating the evils of euthanasia. Anyone
