Let's Be Real

Yes, I know its been a minute. The modified post schedule can be found in the FAQ section, just under the Link section.

Today's Topic: Assisted Suicide

Between 1990 and 1998 Kevorkian assisted in the suicide of over 100 terminally ill people. In each of these cases, the individuals themselves took the final action which resulted in their own deaths: voluntary euthanasia. Dr. Kevorkian assisted only by attaching to the individual a device that he had made. The individual then pushed a button which released the drugs or chemicals that would end his or her own life. (Source:
Many of the people I am close with ask me why I side with him. (Up until he actually did commit murder, that is.) I don't find anything wrong with his actions and before you light your torches and chase me out of the village, I will explain why.
With their permission, Dr. K performed a humane service. When an animal is terminally ill, they put it to sleep to save it from spending their last days in crippling pain, suffering with no way out. I see the same thing. I don't know about the rest of you but there is no way I want to spend the last days of my life in that kind of pain. At that point, I myself would have been right there with him.
(Now I am told that he was only strongly criticized until he actually murdered someone, placing a plastic bag over their head. Yeah, dude, that's murder.)
My godmother, who is a devout churchgoer, believes when a person commits suicide, they are sinning and therefore will not make it to heaven. Being a person who doesn't believe the heaven/hell thing, I don't agree. What I believe is that the good doctor put folks out of their misery. It's not like he was bashing folks heads in and taking their money. No. He was ending their lives so they would no longer have to suffer.
Whats's wrong with that? Direct all replies to my email.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take and may this song play all the way, through. And if it skip a beat, hit repeat, this the realest shit I ever wrote, this is me. If it skip a beat, hit repeat, This the realest shit I ever wrote, this is me. -Juelz Sanatana, This Is Me, What The Game's Been Missing
