I am really busy with college work, but that doesn’t mean I can’t blog. I could, but I couldn’t find an interesting topic for a post. I think my brain’s totally clogged. I have yet to complete so many homework because I don’t quite know how to go about them, and unfortunately it’s happening with my blogging too.
Anyway, I’ve been meaning to blog this, and this is a good time as any. I read this post, and I was wondering what would I do if I were placed in the judge’s shoes. (If you’re wondering what happened to the poor lady, she died in the end, a few days or weeks after I think – naturally.)
On one hand, you have someone who’s going to die anyway… why let him or her suffer any more than necessary? I mean, if it wasn’t a person, but an animal, there isn’t a question of killing in this case; some people actually think it’s cruel to keep a dying, suffering animal alive. Why is it not cruel to keep a dying, suffering human alive then?
On the other hand, who are we to decide who lives or dies? We are not God. (How is it that then we can decide if animals can live or die then in cases of dying, suffering ones?) As for atheists, well… if you believe your body and soul is your own, then why do you need to die legally? There’s suicide…
Okay, I’m not condoning suicide, but it is an option… But then again, why even bother with euthanasia when there is the other option of taking your own life?? I mean, you want to die, but you want people to help you die… if you want something done, then do it yourself, right?
Yes, I’m as muddled as this post sounds, but I think I have valid questions nonetheless.
Hmm, it was discussed here and some feel like me too.
