Christian arguments against euthanasia are presented. The author discusses the worth of a human life, states that euthanasia is a grave violation of the law of God, & articulates his belief that moral law must be obeyed over civil law in situations of contradiction. He notes that the commandment, you shall not kill, leads people to promote life actively & to develop particular ways of thinking & acting that serve life. (21 refs) (SC)
