Talk about slothful! But it is easier & quicker for you to zip out a critical retort.
Did not write I did not know the source; just do your own research (and assume less).
Here an excellent site chock full of facts and information (for Mr. G to ignore).http://www.euthanasia.com
I'm not interested in reading sites concerning euthanasia, for me it is quite simple, as simple as in the case of termination of pregnancy: I believe that the individual involved should have the right to choose. Not you. Not the state. Not anybody else. Just the individual involved. They will accrue the karmic debt anyway, so...
It is easy for you to play the moral overlord, given you are not in the situation yourself, but I bet if you were put in the situation you would want to have the right to choose. You would jump up and down and have hissy fits about it, I am sure.
Anyway, I am not interested in the propaganda of one side or the other regarding the issue, I am interested in whether the quote YOU POSTED is from a Theravada or a Mahayana source. I bet it is Theravada.
