Why is there such animosity toward human euthanasia?
My mother is dying of cancer. I am greatful that she is not in pain, and that she still has her mental faculties. But she is so weak now, she cannot get out of bed by herself to take a crap.
She is litterally just waiting to die.
It’s not that we are anxious for her to go, and, like I said, she is not suffering in pain. But when terminal patient’s quality of life has deteriorated to the point where they aren’t eating, have no strength and are nothing but skin & bones, what’s the point of stickin’ around?
My parents & I have discussed this amongst ourselves, and they feel the same way. They have already told me of their intentions.
But why is society so against human euthanasia?
(I differentiate between suicide and euthanasia.)
I mean, in this regard, we seem to afford our pets more compassion in these cases than we do humans. WTF?
