I hope you are never in the situation to have to make a similar decision or to watch a loved one experience an agonizing, inevitable death - I think that you would look at things a different way now that you know that all the prayer in the world won't help.

I can attest to this. I watched at least two family members dying in agony while they essentially waited for a fatal complication. Thats what "being kept comfortable" means. It means you get the max dose of morphine while you wait for organ failure.

Why? What is the point of that? So that your family can have those last moments with you? I promise those last moments are nothing but agony for those watching helplessly. There was many many times that while I watched my beloved uncle struggle to breathe and listened to that horrible death rattle in his lungs that I just wanted to steal the morphine from the supply room and give him a fatal dose myself.

"At least we got to say goodbye" is horse shit. I didn't get to say goodbye because he couldn't hear me. To me, its no different than saying goodbye to a headstone or a casket. He can't hear me.

The Onion nails it again.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

A culture that wants the ends times and probably some actively trying to see that the world is destroyed so their precious little death cult can all be wisked away to paradise.

euthanasia is the only form of killing the bible doesn't very proudly and very unfortunately loudly endorses
