    Yes I got this. But how can you say that you agree with anything about the practice of medicine if you believe that death should come naturally?
    As I said, medicine is not unnatural.

    But medicine prevents natural death so how does that work?
    Medicine cannot be unnatural since the cures are found from nature itself!

    Can proton beam therapy be found in the wilderness? How about CBT? Oh and I fancy some IVF from the Atlantic and don't get me started on the best ICU known to man - the inside of a volcano!

    Did you know that the Appeal to Nature is a logical fallacy thus making your argument invalid.

    No, because in my opinion there's always a chance of a cure being found.

    But many of these are from combinations of different natural things. You just have to be intelligent to find them!

    Since the Euthanasia causes unnatural death. And you are going to ask, 'But surely medicine gives unnatural life'? Well no, since there is a chance that you die, there is a chance you survive. It simply improves your chances.

    Excuse but wasn't you initial argument just about death? Not unnatural death? Stop changing your tune.

    IVF is simply a different way of putting the sperm and egg together, which is a natural process.

    Appeal to Nature. Find a better argument.
