Euthanasia & Suicide

Posted by Archer126 on 2003-11-12 15:11:22

The author of this poll was very smart. Both of these issues are talked about in the Bible. We don't have control of what happens to us or where our lives lead us. Killing ourselves either suicide or euthanasia is taking our lives in our own hands.
Now the more confusing thing, they are both the same in God's eyes yet 36% say euthanasia is wrong and 71% say suicide is wrong?! Wheres the sense?? They contradict eachother

Some people feel that they want to die, and if they kill themselves it is suicide. euthanasia is more when someone kills others to "help" them because they are sick or hurt. It applies to animals too. Just in case not everyone knew the definition

Yeah, euthanasia is a tough one, so I put undecided. It's not only relevant in pulling the plug type situations, but it can also get into Hitleresque type situations, like putting a person down because they are disabled, because they'd say it's ending their suffering, etc.

It's incorrect to refer to "pulling the plug" as "euthanasia". Human beings have no plug to pull. If there is a plug to pull, it's because a person is being sustained by artificial devices. Such equipment can be used to keep people alive while their bodies heal, or to allow them to continue to enjoy a life that is, in some ways, more limited than many other people experience. But it can also be used, essentially, to slow and prolong the process of dying, thereby taking an unpleasant part of a person's life that would, left to itself and to God, be over in a relatively short time and prolong it.
