Euthanasis is sometimes perceived as an act of mercy, and this view is also shared by many Christians. They say it is justii ed when it arises due to mercy, love of a neighbour, care and sympathy one feels while looking at the suf erings of a person. That is why it is necessary to distingush euthanasia from mercy. This concerns not only non-believers who do not analyse the issue, but also the Christians who treat the Church’s teaching selectively and are driven by false views. In the title of the article, euthanasia is dei ned as an act of false mercy. The author focuses on the following problems: a) Manipulating terminology concerning the problem, b) Is euthanasia ’good death’? c) The need for the ’imagination of mercy’, d) the proper understanding of mercy in the context of euthanasia.
