Question: You recently suggested the Kevorkianizing (referring to the late Jack Kevorkian) of a dog, telling the owner of an old dog to supersede God's wishes and kill his own pet. Worse yet, you revealed that you'd recently killed your own dog.
How could you? I have four cats, and two are over 17. One cat suffers from kidney disease and has some very bad days. When it's her time, it will be her time. I'm not going to kill my beloved friend and call it euthanasia. — V.J., Nashville, TN
Answer: Euthanasia comes from the Greek, literally meaning a good death without fear, stress or pain.
You're attempting to make euthanasia a religious issue. I don't believe any religion supports the notion of undue suffering. When suffering can no longer be alleviated, I believe it's humane to end that suffering.
