|Yup, that is Me back in 1966 or so!|
As a person who lives with a progressive neuromuscular disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy, that can weaken my muscles to the point that I may need a respirator or be fed by a tube one day, I shudder to think that people I trust actually believe it would be ethical to end my life if I asked them to. Recent headlines about our new Liberal government seeking to work on legalizing Doctor Assisted Suicide or Death, left me with no other option but to speak out again. Even if no one listens, what matters is doing what I believe is right. The results are in God's hands.
So, I started by trying to write an article about this passionate subject and the feelings about it are so intense, it is hard to put it on "paper," so I recorded a video. It is the best way available, to share my heart, to plead with people to think, think about what it really means to say yes to legalizing Doctor Assisted Suicide, Euthanasia and even "mercy" killing. Think hard and long about what it all actually means before you endorse such acts. The blood of the innocent, unborn babies, murdered every day are already on our hands as a society, to add more...
Of course, I know many won't agree about the sanctity of human life at all stages and will agree that it is a great option to have for suffering loved ones or themselves. Whether anyone wants to believe it or not, just as 3x3=9, regardless of whether we accept it as truth, the answer is 9, always will be. The same goes with taking human life, regardless of why or how or when, it isn't right. No debates about that.
Here's the video... I feel convicted to share this.
Anyway, here is the video.

Because I made a series of vides a few years ago on the subject, I will not repeat what is in there. So the videos are below incase anyone is interested. Again, the topic breaks my heart and infuriates me so much.
