Bad euthanasia argument

He warned that banning assisted suicide only serves to create "back alleys for assisted dying," where terminally ill people end their lives even sooner knowing there is no legal option towards the end of their illness.

The euthanasia movement lacks a doomsday scenario to bolster their argument. They're saying in effect that if people don't get killed by a doctor they're going to do it themselves or get some hack to do it to them.

Either way they're dead.

I'm sorry terminally ill people, this thing about legalizing euthanasia, it's not just about you.
