Print | Legalizing Assisted Suicide
Post Letter to the Editor - Jun 01 2011
by Post Editor : letters@portervillepost.com

Dear Editor, Pro euthanasia groups such as "Dignity in Dying" give as a reason that most of the disabled people support assisted suicide. Nothing could be further from the truth:

The Scope survey conducted in the United Kingdom concludes that some 70% of those who are physically handicapped are terrified by the pressure being applied nowadays on the British Parliament in order to legalize this practice.

If the assisted suicide were approved, after having shown a negative image of the disabled as people having "lives without dignity", there would be an appeal to their solidarity, asking them to accept dying before their time so as to avoid being a family, social and financial burden.

Once again we encounter a subterfuge by which inhumane laws (what could be more inhuman than to apply pressure on a helpless person so that he requests his own death), while at the same time proclaiming themselves as liberating for the person, in this case of his suffering, even to the extent of ending the person's life.

These laws are predestined to cause unhappiness and the fear of being unwanted because of being different, they also do away with the freedom of personal choice.

The developed world has prostituted the "human being" concept and is wanting to redefine it again, not taking into account the human being's spiritual soul, which is a creator and imperishable and which God will review once natural death occurs.

To take possession of life is a temptation within our reach which proclaims that we are life's makers and at the same time its executioners if that life suggests to us an imperfection or discomfort.

Thank You Very Much ... Pilar Montalban monpili22@gmail.com from Barcelona Spain
