Question of the day

Someone very close to you is in pain, paralyzed, and will die within a month. He begs you to give him poison so that he can die. Would you?

    I don’t think I can know the answer without actually being in the situation. I have a hard time imagining myself doing anything to hasten a death. Yet, is suffering worse? I “think” it is up to God to decide, but what would I “feel” at that moment?

    I know someone who had her death hastened that way. I don’t feel badly about that. But that doesn’t mean I could perform that act. I just don’t know.

    I don’t know. You have to think about getting into trouble too. That’s against the law, right?! I don’t know if I would take a chance on going to prison. Hate to sound harsh, but I don’t think I’d be willing to do that.

    No, I dont think so.

    I probably couldn’t do it…. If possible I would help them get to a country or a place where someone is willing to help.

    No, that’s what they have morphine for.

    NO! Is there a way this person can get out of pain without someone killing them? Probably. Death wouldn’t come by my hand though. Not to sound self righteous, but It’s just not in me.
