My Weekly View # 1: Americans Divided by Advancing Euthanasia Laws
The United States of America, a nation founded under the principles of God, keeps moving away from God's path. Four states have now legalized doctor-assisted suicide (this is a process in which the patient or the people in charge of the patient willingly ask the doctor to kill them). Americans have very different views on this topic; some radically say no, and others consider it a economically reasonable choice. I myself am very divided on wether or not this is right. As a Christian, I know that God is the only one who gives life and the only one who has the right to take it, but we must put ourselves in the shoes of the patient who probably is in the last stage of cancer and wants to end his/her suffering. I want to go according to God's word but then again, I am not suffering from a terminal disease. Anyway, I cannot decide; I leave it to the reader to think about it.
