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 asked earlier in Just For Fun but thought this would also be relevent in Religion section.
Why would God want someone to lay around suffering, and have their families watch them suffer? I truly believe there is more than just the strick guidelines of the bible, I am sure God knows and understands that every situation is different. It is not like these people are trying to get away from trouble at school, or work. They have a real reason to want to end their life, and if they choose to do it a little sooner than intendedthen so be it. At least let them do it with dignity and peace! It shouldn't be up to the government to choose for these people, it should be between them and god!
