I find myself torn on the Death With Dignity Act. I do believe that a person should not have to sit around waiting to die if they have a very very painful terminal illness. However, as a Christian I do believe that suicide is a sin. I know some Christians say that you can ask forgiveness for commiting suicide before you do it, but I'm not sure on that point. However, this story was really touching and I was just wondering how other women feel about it.

I just don't know what's right here. I was at the doctor's office yesterday and they had big signs up saying they categorically refuse to have anything to do with it. In many cases of terminal illness I see it as a final kindness when used to relieve terrible suffering. However I also see this as a way for family members and doctors and insurance companies to subtly (or not so subtly) pressure people to basically "hurry up and get it over with so it doesn't cost so much". Not in so many words, but that could get to be the idea. Terminally ill people and the elderly would be *educated* that it was the socially responsible thing to do.
