I'd prefer the option to have control if my life was unbearable through illness that could not be cured and I was merely existing not living:-( Hugs Jan xx

Congrats Jan. Your question about death is probably the same as the statement re birth: not out of choice! /x/ paul

Thanks Paul. They put an animal down when it's life is no longer bearable and to end its suffering - shame human's don't have the 'voice' at the moment to make a decision regarding the time to end their life but from recent news in the media the church are finally listening . Hugs Jan xxx

"No choice to be born" and unfortunately, "No choice to be dead!" Such is life.

Yes I wondered whether to post it Casarah as its an emotive subject but one that is in the news recently. Hugs Jan xxx

I think in some circumstances, this is an important thing. Those who have really bad diseases and are in a lot of suffering. It is more humane if they can be put out of misery. I sure hope I will never be faced with such feelings but it happens every day. Good one.
