The question is, IF you could end it, would you? If your loved ones got so freakin’ ill, that the quality of life drops to next to ZERO, what would be the purpose, of keeping them alive? And would it NOT be considered UNFAIR to the sick? What would they want you to do?
Prolonged suffering, when it can be ended, why not? Oh yeah, because it wouldn’t be RIGHT, for us (any of us, actually!!!) to DECIDE when to END someone’s life, right? But, think about it, what IF your loved ones got sick? To the point that breathing becomes too difficult, that the ONLY way for them, to live OUT the remainder of their years (however long that may be) is by getting CONNECTED to tubes, would you want that, on your loved ones?
There’s NO point, in prolonged suffering, and, just because you can still EAT, drink and perform ALL the “normal functions” of your lives, still doesn’t meant that you WANT to be KEPT alive, after all, you ARE the one who’s ill, and the rest of the OUTSIDE world knows SHIT about what you’re going through, including those who are closest to you, your families.
