Teenage Girl Wins Right To Die
Posted 11/11/08
I hope her last moments are with loved ones, but isn't that kind of childish? I mean she isn't gonna spend her whole life in the hospital, just till she gets better. No matter how much you don't like it, I think if it means you get to keep on living it's worth a shot.

It's called religion.

Christianity.
something about not killing people?
or not killing your self.
"thou shall not kill" i think it is O_O

I'm really happy for her, not the fact that she's choosing to die, but for choosing what she wanted most.

I do think it's really unfair to not have to right to die if you want to though..specially in these kinda cases.

At least she could live her life the way she wanted now...I mean, of course she doesn't wish to die, however, she could "enjoy" more things than staying in the hospital

The Church here in Perth is against Euthanasia for the reason that suicide is a sin.

Just posted but yes, it is a sin to commit suicide to Christians and Catholics. Pro Life groups want euthanasia banned and abortions banned and most of which are backed and funded by churchs. I didn't say it out of jest, I was serious.

I'm guessing your religious?
I don't think they should ban Euthanasia..
Why would 'God' want 'his/her/it's' people to suffer if they're gonna end up dying anyways?

I had a little inward chuckle there

I'm an Atheist, well I just plain don't believe in any deity, but coming from an Italian family my nonna's are both Catholic *fathers side* and Christian *mother's side*. My immediate family are all Atheist as well.

I'm not against euthanasia for the idea of relieving physical suffering, but hate it when morons off themselves for stupid reasons ie couldn't get what they wanted, fell on hard times that they could recover from but just don't want to etc. I believe that suicide like that is cowardly. I view Euthanasia and Suicide differently because their reasons are different.

You're confusing the idea of suicide and natural death, get your definitions straight. Choosing to not extend one's life by medical means does not mean suicide for she is not taking her own life rather, it is her fatal disease that is rushing her early departure.

Would you consider someone who dies from cancer a suicider? The girl is indeed quite clever at such an early age. Death is an inevitable factor of life as the two compliment one another. One way or another, we're all going to have to face it, no exceptions to the rule. So instead of turning to science to prolong her suffering, she's accepted her fast coming end with open arms -- just as humans from the beginning of our history had to do when the odds were stacked against them.

Religion is a personal preference, you cannot push your beliefs onto others and judge whether their decisions and actions are sins or good deeds.

The judge upon man is nothing but a judge upon himself. Remember that.
