The Giver: Euthanasia

There are reasons why society don't make doctors countdown to death of their patients. It's unmoral, and it's like putting a gun to your head and counting down to zero. In fact the author purposely put that in there, because she knows this is how the death sentence is carried out for murderers (aka the lethal injection death sentence)! The elderly in the book aren't murderers (except for Jona's father who kills babies) so they shouldn't die this way.
