Great article! I like that you include the invitation you overheard at the restaurant. It is an irational fear, as you say. And it is also a misunderstanding of what responsible & legal euthanasia will look like. I enjoyed Peter Singer’s essayson this topic.
Your friend is also bold. Both of you are doing great work for progress. Let’s hope that Portugal embodies a more secular nation, that is not affected by these preconceived notions.
