Dr. Ed Najgebauer states that the group Dying With Dignity supports, among other things, medically assisted dying if that’s what a patient wants. What “other things” may I ask?
As part of strict safeguards to be put in place to prevent abuse, he suggests having physicians being involved in the decision to grant the patient’s wishes.
We all know about the rubber-stamping role of physicians who sat on committees when requests for therapeutic abortions were presented decades ago. How long is a “significant period of time” before death is dealt?
“Unbearable” suffering is a very subjective matter. Baby Boomers, beware. As we get older, it will become easier and easier for society, and unfortunately our own family at times, to find reasons for us to leave this world in a so-called “dignified may.”
This would be very “convenient” for many. Let God decide when it is time for us to meet Him. The choice is not ours, but His.
