Euthanasia in the Media Today.

My watch on the euthanasia scare:

Rachel Maddow reports the president fielding a question at a town hall. Don't miss this segment. (Or the one with my friend Jeff Sharlet talking about The Family afterwards.)

Kudos to Lifenews' Steven Ertelt, no purveyor of respectable journalism, for squashing the "senior death" hype. The article quotes AARP head as doing the lie debunking!

As I mention below, Britain has a giant legal battle going on over assisted suicide. Here's a piece from the Examiner that looks at our own public discourse and reports a fear-inducing email that is making the rounds.

A classic "Culture of Death" commentary on culturewatch, from Bill Muehlenberg.

And another example, this time complete with a Kevorkian photo, no lie! I love the way the right is giving republicans credit for thankfully reading the bill before it was foolishly passed to the detriment of the American public. Hilarious, because what they're crediting is actually republicans making up scary lies! They didn't read the bill. Geez.

Across the pond, the largest British Nurses Organization recently changed its stance on assisted suicide. The change has caused quite an uproar in a country where the debate is already at a pitch, only in part due to the tandem deaths of Sir Edward Downes and his terminal wife Joan.

I'm sure there's more to come throughout the day.
