Israel & Euthanasia

Meira Online did an excellent two part piece on Israel and Euthanasia. Part one here. Part two here. Go read.

Walking to the macholet in the rain depressed you enough to think about death? [beg]

It was great talking to you--sorry I had to cut it so short.

I was afraid of melting away like the Wicked Witch of the West?

Actually Meira and I had been talking about the issue, she blogged about it and so I linked.

What is really disturbing is the non-Jewish reaction to the law. Click on technorati link in her blog. It is really upsetting the anti-Jewish comments on some people's blog.

I really appreciated those links. A few weeks ago a Christian blogger had submitted a post on the subject on how terrible the law was, but understood that the post might be inflammatory. I found an Arutz-7 article on the subject and sent the A7 back and begged off including the post.

I sent links to Meira's posts back to the blogger yesterday and he/she was going to look them over. He/She seemed to appreciate the clarification. I guess I have to check it out and see if they retracted or reversed their remarks.

Thanks David...Meira did a fantastic job of covering the subject. She also sent me some great info via the e-mails.

It is a heavy topic. LMK if you have a chance if the
Christian blogger retracted/reveresed their comments...

I have been making the slow rounds, myself, leaving comments at various blogs, trying to enlighten.

"'Euthanasia' in Israel - Part 3'" is now up, and anyone who wants the facts should read it. In Part 3, I share my direct exchange with the Dr. who chaired the committee that developed the law. People just have no excuse now to rely on poor journalism and misinformation that is otherwise being circulated through other blogs.

Also, so far, I have seen none of the offending Blogs retract or at least admit their error.
I have submitted Part 3 to "Pro-Life Blogs." If it gets on PL Blogs, that will be good to get word out.
