Are Mercy Killings (Euthanasia) Ethical?
Comments by Susan - 20 Nov 2010

Irena,

You are not interfering with God's will by making the decision to end your beloved dog's pain and suffering. God entrusts us with the responsibility to love and care for his creatures. When there is no hope for recovery and a quality of life, it is our moral duty to be merciful and kind. Be strong. God will help you.

We pray for your strength and for your aching heart.

With love and deep sympathy,

--Susan
