Euphemism march

First it was "euthanasia", then it was "assisted suicide", now it's "assisted dying", but  at the end of the day, it's still "murder".

I don't mind when activists indulge in rampant euphemisms (or newspeak, to be honest) but when the news media pick it up without a blink, that's when I get worried.
