“Slippery slope arguments are not always invalid.

Indeed, in some cases they are very important. …

I once heard a Dutch researcher speaking about the situation in his home country, where euthanasia was legislated in 2002. He summarised the litany of shocking outcomes after more than a decade of euthanasia, by saying that in his country, the ‘psyche of care’ has been fundamentally changed.

Once you accept that death is a valid form of care, you have changed a great deal.”

– The Australian Christian Lobby’s Martyn Iles presents some deeply disturbing examples of what has already been happening on that slippery slope.
