Another bad argument is that the frail will be intimidated into hastening the end of their lives so as not to be a burden on their children. Well, why not? I would not choose to put unbearable caring duties on my four children. I hope not to leave them with a miserable memory of a wretched prolonged and agonising end. That's not a bad reason.
Wow! Read those first 2 sentences again and think about what Toynbee is saying... She is basically saying that those who are diagnosed with acute disabilities or serious illness should be encouraged (intimidated is her word) to end their lives. Wow! Wow! Wow! Welcome to the tragic world of atheism pro-choice actually = pro-death!
