When I was in junior high, I was supposed to write a paper on a "social issue" for my social studies class. I was asking one of the teachers about different things that I could write about. After I turned down a few of her ideas, she said, "you could write about euthanasia." I told her that that sounded like a cool thing to write about. Of course, I had never heard the word before, so I thought she had said "Youth in Asia". I spent a few hours at the library, trying to find information about what young people did in Asia. I didn't get very far at all. I went to the teacher and said, "I don't understand this. What DO the youth in Asia DO?" I was totally under the impression that I should be writing about their culture and how they grow up differently from us.

When I was young and heard about euthanasia on the news, I thought they were talking about "youth in Asia". Someone was talking about how bad euthanasia was, and I thought the young people over there were rioting.

I am another submitter who thought Euthanasia was "Youth In Asia". I thought it was a foreign exchange student program. (I believed this until just a few years ago!)

When watching the news as a kid I thought "euthanasia" was "youth in asia", which was a polite way of referring to child prostitutes in asia.

When my English class read "Of Mice and Men" a couple years ago, my teacher told us, "It's about euthanasia." Well, I misheard her and I thought she meant, "It's about the youth in Asia." So I read the first chapter and came in to class like, "What the heck? This isn't about Asian kids at all!"

I was in Science Class one day and we were talking about death and dying, when one of my friends asked about Euthanasia. When i heard it said i thought it was 'Youth In Asia', but it wasn't. I Didn't know this until i read this website. I couldn't understand what the children in Asia had to do with basiaclly a sudicide act.

My teacher told me to write a on euthenasia. she only gave me verbal instructions, never writing down the actual term. Being a kid during the Vietnam war, and having never heard that term before, I spent hours at the library trying to research "Youth In Asia" until the libaraian finally set me straight.

For the longest time I couldn't figure out why everyone, was so concerned with the 'youth in asia'. Through inference I realized that the 'youth in asia' had something to do with killing people. I immediately adopted a position of anti-youth in asia. Until one day when my mother heard this statement and through her tears of laughter explain that 'youth in asia' was euthanasia.

I used to hear my parents talking about euthanasia issues, and I couldn't figure out what the Youth in Asia had to do with people dying, but I figured I should know and was too embarassed to ask.

My sister believed until she was in her late teens that whenever people talked about euthenasia they were actually talking about the "youth in Asia". She didn't understand what all the controvery was about...what was wrong with the youth in Asia? This was around the time of Jack Kevorkian so it was being talked about a lot.

I grew up watching the news with my father a lot. I used to think "euthanasia" was "youth in asia" and used to constantly wonder why so many politicians were so opposed to the asian youngsters.
