A comment by KW on my opposition to physician-assisted suicide warrants a post in reply.
You want to force people to suffer the indignity of a painful withering death, and then pat yourself on the back for cherishing life. You can’t stand the thought of people living, dying, and behaving other than the way you think they should, and will do whatever you can to control them. You think the pinnacle of morality is contained in a two thousand year old fairytale. You are sick. Your religion warps your mind.
Understand, KW, that on a daily basis I relieve the suffering of people facing death. The idea of you lecturing me on relief of suffering is obscene.
Killing in not medical care. If you are terminally ill and suffering, you can kill yourself and no one can stop you. There are bridges and ropes and guns and closed garages and running cars everywhere.
Suicides have never anywhere been hampered by lack of opportunity.
What I won't let you do is turn my profession into killers.
