“…is it surprising that today we have become so morally blind (for wickedness blinds) that we save the baby whales at great cost, and murder millions of unborn children?” (Alice von Hildebrand, The Privilege of Being a Woman)

Prayer for Respect of Life
the beauty and dignity of human life
was the crowning of your creation.
You further ennobled that life
when your Son became one with us in his incarnation.
Help us to realize the sacredness of human life
and to respect it from the moment of conception
until the last moment at death.
Give us courage to speak with truth
and love and with conviction in defence of life.
Help us to extend the gentle hand of mercy and forgiveness
to those who do not reverence your gift of life.
To all, grant pardon for the times we have failed
to be grateful for your precious gift of life
or to respect it in others.
We ask this in Jesus’ Name.
Euthanasia really shouldn’t be on that list, because of all the others it’s the only one where the patient may have the choice.
Euthanasia is an attack on life. It absolutely has a place in all pro-life discussions. Just because someone has a “choice” to end their life doesn’t make it morally okay. And as you admit through your words “may have a choice”, you realise that in some cases the “patient” may also not have a choice. This is a problem in the Netherlands where euthanasia has been legal for many years.
That’s your opinion.
