LEGALISED euthanasia is little more than state-sanctioned murder in my opinion.

The moves in Victoria to legalise "mercy killing" is deeply distressing.

Remember that mercy killing was a euphemism made up by Adolf Hitler to disguise state-sponsored ­murder.

It authorised doctors to kill anyone in Germany who was mentally ill, emotionally unstable or too old to be of any value to the military effort.

Old people will have to sleep with one eye open.
