For lack of a better title...
We glance this subject often. Everytime we talk about some guy riding like a crazy mo-fo, we always end up mentionning that your life is worth too much to throw it away so recklessly.
This is a big community and we have lots of different backgrounds. I am interrested in different religious views and different personnal beliefs.
Specificly, I want things like: When euthanasia becomes an option? What is good enough grounds for an abortion? Is suicide ever acceptable?
let me relate some stories:
My grand mother died of cancer. She spent the last 2 weeks of her life moaning in paine, all the while floating in a haze of morphine induce delirium. All this because nobody could bare parting with her. I saw it as everybody being too selfish to do the right thing. She was beging to die, but none of her kids could/would do anything about it. She deserved to die some other way.
Also, I think I have kinda of a unique perspective on the whole abortion issue. Things being what they are, my mother was supposed to have an abortion to terminated her pregnacy. She recinded at the last moment, and here I am. Looking back, after some of the trials and trebulations I had to go through as a kid, I can't say I can fault her for initially wanting to take that course of action. I grew up to be a fairly stable person, but it could have been otherwise, very easely.
Some unborn cellular mass don't have much to look forward too. And no mater how much you think life is worth, you have to pause and ask yourself how much pain can you let someone endure.
I'll stop here for the night.
