BIOETHICS QUOTES BY FAMOUS PEOPLE
Euthanasia: "In Belgium medicalised killing is now coupled with organ harvesting—including of the mentally ill. Health care rationing, which is blatant and invidious medical discrimination, is a growing threat. Advocacy continues to discard the dead donor rule in organ transplant medicine, even proposals for the live-harvesting of patients with profound cognitive disabilities."

Euthanasia: "Suffering is only intolerable when nobody cares."
Sperm donation: "When I was 6 I realised that I looked very different from other family members. I asked my mum "are you really my mum, is my dad really my dad?" It hurts that you can't meet your real dad, and feel loved and acknowledged by him. Sperm donation is creating a baby between two strangers. My parents did not even want to be in the same room, let alone in the same bed. It is cold. Ultimately, I don't agree with this practice for this reason - you shouldn't have a baby with someone you don't love, let alone with someone you don't know. I am the product of that."
