suicide

Posted on September 15, 2009 at 5:56pm 1 Comment

do not call it suicide!
I firmly believe that one has a right to decide that it is time to go. people have a right to decide about the beginning of life- altho much debated. When a person has no more to live for - only to suffer pain and loneliness. why not be able to say "did everything I wanted" I want to say goodby on my own terms, in my own time. GOODBY IS NOT SUICIDE!

I have a very religious friend.When her 17-yr old dog was suffering apparent pain she made the decision. When I said that I was suffering extreme emotional mourning and physical pain and disability and should have the same rights, she could not answer. The only difference was the ability to speak. My friend became angry and left the room.
But the dog has more rights. WHY?

I do not have the courage, but I should have the right.
The word is not SUICIDE. The word is CHOICE!
