For those who are tortured by illness every minute and every second,
Euthanasia offers an ultimate salvation from their hopeless struggles.
Take some cancer patients for example. They have to get an injection every ten minutes or more. When all treatments have failed, don't they have the right to choose mercy killing?
Also, when a normal adult, independent and free, suddenly becomes an impotent patient who can't take care of himself, can you imagine how he feels?
About five years ago, our family went through a hard time when we had to choose to let a five-month-old baby live or let him die.
At the time the doctor said he could save the baby. But because of a long shortage of oxygen, the baby's brain cells were seriously damaged and would become paralyzed even if he survived.
We chose to let him live in paradise and in our hearts.
Maybe you would think we were ruthless. But consider this---if he lives to this day, how much pain will he have to endure? And every day we have to go to the hospital to watch him suffer. I believe he will be unhappy and we will too.
In the end, euthanasia not only relieves the patient of their pressure but it also relieves their family and the society's pressure as well.
Let me emphasize again and again, the legalization of euthanasia is not to encourage people to forsake their loved ones, or to run away from the trouble. It is only meant to give the dying their right to choose mercy killing.
