“Euthanasia is simply to be able to die with dignity at a moment when life is devoid of it.”
— Marya Mannes

The Final RIght

Euthanasia is a complex topic with no right or wrong answers. The law, as it stands, in most countries prohibits it. A few countries allow it in a limited manner. It is not something people talk about in general. Talking about it would bring the painful ironies of our world into plain sight which would be quite unbearable for the vast majority of people.

The real problem with euthanasia is neither legal nor moral. The fact that a person would voluntarily choose to end their life forces us to see the world as it really is and not how we choose to view it. The world is indifferent and we are responsible. Both, for how it is and how it should be. Once we recognize this fact, we can change it.

I believe it stands to reason that if a sane person wants to end their life for reasons that are apparent to any sensible person, unmotivated by religious or other constructed sensibilities, then that person should be allowed to exercise their right to decide their own destiny. People who do not have the answers should not stop others from seeking theirs.
