My point of view on assisted suicide I believe it a sin. In the Holy Bible the “Ten Commandments” it is written “thou shalt not kill.” I stand on the concept that dismissing a person life before it’s his/her time is truly not right. I believe that no matter whom you or what position you may hold doesn’t give you the right to play God. Due to the obvious extent of self-interest that an individual have in their own personal choices; in this day in our culture people as usual try to seek out assured circumstances in such an upright and surprising ways. It was once said ...view middle of the document...
” In James 2:26, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”The Lord even sees when a sparrow falls (Matthew 10:29). Although animals do not have a soul they do have spirits (Ecclesiastes 3:21). I believe the government has the given authority by God to take a person life for the reason of Capital Punishment. Throughout the bible there it is not written that physicians have any authority by God to take a person life. Like I have mentioned above the only one has the given right is the government for capital punishment but all other individuals are given the commandment. “Thou shalt not kill,” Exodus 20:13 and “Thou shalt do no murder,” Matthew 19:18. As we have seen, the taking of the spirit from the body is something done by God in His time. This is God’s business, not ours or physicians.
I believe it a sign that there are needs that are not being attended to for a patients’ request for suicide. One of the matters that individuals have to deal with is to make the choice do they want the one that they cherish so closely to suffer or take care of the ill individual by themselves for the period in this society when those individuals are opposed with the possibly of assisted suicide. I would definitely weigh out my options before I even think about assisted suicide. I believe that assisted suicide I just wicked. It is just plain murder for any kind of assisted suicide.
For the people after they are dead, have gone through assisted suicide, there are some findings afterwards that their illness was misdiagnosed or they could have been cured.A miracle could occur, or a misdiagnosis could happen. Maybe, if we were to keep this in mind infers that we ought to be exceptionally aware not that we ought to react under any given situations. We got to do everything that is in our might to prolong life as long as we can in case there could be a startling recovery or a misdiagnosis. Even though, we wouldn’t ever refuse or not allow any treatment when the situation might be disheartened if this is the case rushed death shouldn’t be taken so lightly. Suffering is in God’s plan ending life to dismiss suffering is interfering with God’s plan. It has been made clear that all suffering is comes from God to serve as a purpose we shouldn’t never interfere with the acts of God. By allowing assisted suicide it is a less expensive way for the selected one to get out taking care of the destitute.
Assisted Suicide is right. An individual ought to have the right to die with personal self-respect. It’s a known fact that the legislation has legalized assisted suicide with the claim that it’s the moral rights of every individual to have a free choice whatever they decide to do with his/her life with the exception that they don’t cause any harm to others. If an individual’s deciding to end their life they have the right to. There are several of people who want to die, since such people whose handicap, condition, disease...
