For me this is fantastic news! I have never believed in ‘Euthanasia’ (Mercy-killing). As long as we did not create yourself, you have no right what so ever to take it. It’s like playing God (at least for those who believe in God).
Brittany Maynard was diagnosed with terminal Brain Cancer and she was given 6 months to live. Her husband and close family members actually moved to Oregon so that she could have access to its Death with Dignity Act. She decided to end her life come November 1st, not wanting to die miserably. *But she has seen that it is not easy!*
According to People Magazine, this is what Brittany recorded on a 6-minute video…
“So if November 2nd comes along and I’ve passed, I hope my family is still proud of me and the choices I made,…And if November 2nd comes along and I’m still alive, I know that we’ll just still be moving forward as a family, like, out of love for each other and that that decision will come later,”

Like I said and will continue saying, it is not right to end your life no matter what. It’s a completely selfish act. You should allow your loved ones to continue loving you till the very end (which we do not know when will come, even if the doctors give date). It shows absolute lack of trust and faith in God. I still believe in miracles, and if you kill yourself, you miss that opportunity when God decides to turn things around!
