I was so distressed by this that I couldn't sleep after hearing about it on the radio. How is quoting the bible considered grounds for a factual and rational argument for something of such serious content, especially within our government?
My mind kept parroting two things at me:
1. Give me one bible quote arguing for god's sanctity for life, and I will give you three where he condones/encourages/roots enthusiastically for murder.
2. I hope the Right to Life of Idaho folks never have to watch a loved one suffer the end stages of a terminal disease. I'd hate for them to suddenly want to show any mercy for their fellow man by allowing them to die peacefully and with dignity instead of in excruciating, painful agony.
What are your comments?
This is the worst unjustifiable aspect of God,
God left the human suffering because of depression in his life... then let him suffering in hell fire forever just because he decided to end his life!
Aha, thanks for the point...I looked at the link..
really interesting! cuz it's the first time to hear about this subject..
First, I thought it's about suicide in general, and especially for some difficult diseases in advanced cases which sometimes accompanied with depression..
Then, now I got it.... but it's really something sad and strange! and not accepted by humanity ... maybe because I am a foreigner I see this as a strange thing .... I dont know... :)
I wonder how many of these right-to-life supporters have any medical experience caring for the terminally ill. As an RN, I have and find it hard to believe anyone could be against it if they saw how poor the quality of life is for some who are terminally ill. Of course, separation of church and state seems to be ignored by the majority of those who propose and pass U.S. laws.
Currently in the U.S. physician-assisted suicide is legal in Oregon & Washington state. Guess where I'm moving if I'm ever diagnosed with a terminal illness?
