Sooooo seminar kid C. chooses to write her persuasive speech in favor of euthanasia, but she just can't seem to get her paper off the ground. She tells me she is passionate about euthanasia, that she believes firmly that no one should have to live in agony, but she has no other arguments. I help her as best I can, suggesting she concentrate on free will and human dignity, asking if she has read enough about the topic; despite our efforts, C.'s paper is uncharacteristically thin.
The day arrives for C. to deliver her persuasive speech. C. trudges to the lectern and begins with a confession: she has just learned, seconds before, that she's had euthanasia confused with anesthesia all this time.
