Images Of The Terminally Ill Are Biased Towards The Pro-Deathers

Look carefully at these images. These are the kind of images that are most likely to accompany articles related to assisted suicide or euthanasia. Now, death and dying are hardly likely to generate “happy” images, but it’s equally true that many terminally ill people die comfortably at home, comfortable, and surrounded by the love of their families and friends. Where are those images? Think about this the next time you read a piece on assisted suicide or euthanasia. I think these images reinforce the pro-deather side of the argument.
