AB, you recently commented on morality and made your usual condemnation of euthanasia. Your comments were almost the very same as you posted in a previous thread. In that previous thread, I asked what personal experience you had caring for terminally ill people. You made no reply.
I also suggested that no legislation for assisted dying in the world allowed for euthanasia to be used a murder weapon. You made no comment.
Can you even briefly describe that personal experience if you’ve had one?
And, have you actually read any legislation, even from your own country, such as the Oregon's Death with Dignity Act?
Here’s a little help https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oregon_Ballot_Measure_16_(1994) it’s not very long but you will see that it has nothing to do with murder.
All assisted dying legislation provides for the patient requesting to die being monitored for cognitive ability, two doctors to confirm death would be imminent within six months (a very long time when you are in intense pain with no hope of remission, not to mention the intense guilt of being a burden on your family) and other various strict requirements that must be met under laws of the nation involved. Noncompliance with these laws would lead to a charge of murder, to be tried in a court of law.
I do not expect a reply. I suspect you might be like some good people I know who just cannot address issues of death and dying at all in any shape or form; I don’t know about you, but if that’s the case I understand. It’s been suggested you lack life experiences and that’s not a criticism.
However may I suggest, if you lack personal experience, that you might do a little reading and research on the matter of caring for terminal patients.
I can recommend this pamphlet on the care of MND sufferers which what I lived by during the time I cared for my late wife, https://www.mndassociation.org/wp-content/uploads/px011-motor-neurone-di..., it’s a long read and if you imagine the symptoms being suffered by someone you care for, it’s pretty intolerable. It’s worse in real life.
Do not think I am being nasty AB, but it seems to me you do yourself and your religion no justice, by blindly and ignorantly lashing out against a very real life situation with no more excuse than that your religion condemns it. I suggest the bible will not reveal the very human issues involved in end of life experiences.
And there is very little to commend you for condemning doctors and the medical profession of being murderers. You unfairly implicate family members in that heinous crime and it is hurtful to the memories of those who wanted merely to pass away peacefully.
If you don’t care to respond then kindly stop making wild ignorant assertions about euthanasia as merely murder. You do not realise the pain anger and indignation you arouse.
