“To live until you die”
Seeing things from another perspective can help. The approach of another country is an example. The United Kingdom is grappling with an “Assisted Dying” bill. “This Friday (18 July 2014), [the bill] will receive its second reading in the House of Lords.” Countries are not identical, yet some issues share similarities across borders and cultures—as well as supporters and detractors. A recent post from the British Jesuits calls for a “balanced and reasoned debate” of the proposed legislation.
(The brief post includes an historical note about hospice care. A term, “Motor Neurone Disease,” may not be familiar; this link may prove helpful.)
