Suicide or Freedom? When the body’s functions get confused and help is needed for your every move, is it wrong to choose a peaceful death then? Why is such a choice called suicide? ‘Tis said dying for one’s country is heroic: doesn't a soldier stepping on foreign soil not know he might be killed: is this not suicide? Ah, but wait: perhaps it is OK to kill oneself providing one is willing to kill another first? Am I getting this right? We can use our mind to choose our time of death, or we can leave it to the body to decide: which makes the most sense? Are we not reasoning creatures? Should we not have a choice, to live or to die? Technology makes it possible to keep bodies alive, often in horrible agony and torment of mind when in a natural state, such a life would terminate, and the spirit be set free: what are we afraid of? Dignity! Right to choose! Autonomy to an individual! Individual power over death: unacceptable to the system. There are those given the power of life and death over others: They need this power – but they hide under morality; They also need the money drugs provide, and hide that under some Divine rule: Ah! What lovely hypocrisy! So they make themselves judge and jury and the groans of the dying in their pain fill their hospitals’ corridors and float everywhere: a curse! They set their personal morality against another's denying peace and comfort in the last hours of life, but it is only greed: profit from the drugs and from the fees, nothing more, nothing at all.
