WEB Notes: Remember the perception we just spoke about? Here it is again. Slowly over the years this idea continues to be presented to the public and it gains traction as not many will speak against it. The problem is, the powers that be own air time and all you end up getting is one side of the argument and so over time the people become conditioned to the thought. Psychology is a very powerful tool.
According to a recent Gallup poll, 72% of Americans believe that euthanasia should be legal.
In addition, the survey found that “Democrats and liberals are especially likely to favor it.”
Gallup asked, “When a person has a disease that cannot be cured, do you think doctors should be allowed by law to end the patient’s life by some painless means if the patient and his or her family request it?”
Seventy-two percent of all adults said “yes,” doctors should be allowed by law to end the patient’s life. Only 27% said “no.”
For the ideologically liberal, 89 percent said yes, and 54 percent of conservatives said yes. Also, for Democrats, 80 percent said yes, and 62 percent of Republicans said yes.
