Though well researched, this article restricts its focus on the Netherlands where euthanasia has already been legalized. It would have been better to tackle this debate from a broader perspective as the majority of its audience are from countries where the mere idea of legalizing euthanasia is still flown upon. Nicolosi, Barbara. “ Exposing Euthanasia through the Art. ” Crisis Magazine, 3 June. 2011.This article is just an admonition of the latest trend in the entertainment industry where euthanasia is being propagated. In this article, the authors criticize the “ good” among us for keeping quiet as this pro-euthanasia propaganda is being waged perpetuated by Hollywood and in general, the entertainment industry.
It is his strong belief that as pro-euthanasia continues framing sympathy on this issue, the pro-euthanasia will continue getting an edge over anti-euthanasia. He, therefore, urges those who care to initiate an all-out war against these pro-euthanasia campaigners instead of just issuing a harangue here and there once in a while. This article is a nice read for anti-euthanasia but not for a person looking for an objective analysis of the issue of euthanasia and mercy killing.

All that a person gets after reading it is an attempt to incite anti-euthanasia forces again pro-euthanasia forces instead of countering their arguments with hard facts. In my view statements like “ we ought to be not just shrewder but also all-encompassing in countering pro-euthanasia propaganda if we are to win this fight (Nicolosi 1)” is just unfortunate.

In this regard, he narrates the story of Val McKay, who is terminally sick with multiple sclerosis; a narration that is interspersed with directs quotes from Val on her suffering at the hands of this deadly disease. Val wish is perfectly reflected in this article title if the predicaments that she narrates are anything to go by. In the midst of the noise that the pro and anti-euthanasia campaigners have been generating over the years as they try to outdo one another in this debate, it is interesting to get a first-hand view of this issue from a candidate of euthanasia like Val.
