Mercy Killing Question


My friart-photo-pennys-cat-sleeping-perfectend’s kitty has cancer. Kitty is really sick. Friend has decided not to do chemo treatments or other serious measures.

Friend might have to decide whether or not to put kitty “to sleep.”

Euthanizing, aka mercy killing a fatally sick animal seems, well, merciful.

Euthanizing people is, according to many, including Christians, murder.

So, why does it seem OK to put animals to sleep, but not people?

Is it because we are stewards of animals and have dominion over them, plus animals don’t have spirits?
