A Poem on Euthanasia?


The right to perish might be thought

An undisputed right –

Attempt it, and the Universe

Upon the opposite

Will concentrate its officers –

You cannot even die

But nature and mankind must pause

To pay you scrutiny.


This was written by Emily Dickinson in the late 1800’s. I always find it interesting to see that we have been asking the same questions for decades if not centuries. I find it amusing when a group or person insists that they have the right answer, or the final answer, when people have been debating the question since before they were born.
