A Right or a Wrong? But Matthew Donnelly wanted to die. For the past thirty years, Matthew had conducted research on the use of X-rays.
Now, skin cancer riddled his tortured body. He had lost his nose, his left hand, two fingers on his right hand, and part of his jaw. He was left blind and was slowly deteriorating. The pain was unrelenting. Doctors estimated that he had a year to live. Lying in bed with teeth clenched from the excruciating pain, he pleaded to be put out of his misery.
Matthew wanted to die now. His pleas went unanswered. Harold was tried for murder. This article was published 26 years ago.
Do you think an answer was ever found? For some perhaps, but to others I doubt it. What struck me was the actual question. No, it was how the question was phrased. Is assisted suicide a Right as in a civil or human right?
Or, is assisted suicide a Wrong as in an offense or injustice?
The presumption here may be that this moral question was already settled in the mind of the authors; therefore, the only question remaining was whether such action was protected under the constitution or prosecutable.
For me, the moral question is settled. I harbor no confusion over whether suicide is right or wrong, and I have peace with my position. I am hopeful that my decision reflects my hope and faith that someone other than the man in the mirror holds the reins over my life.
But what about assisting someone else to terminate their life? Each of us will have to stand before the judgment seat of the Almighty my belief and opinion and answer for the decisions and actions we took in this life. So if I take my life, I have to deal with that at some point.
I am taking that decision away from the Righteous One; however, is this any different if I take my own life? You might say an Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient God cannot have any decision taken or usurped from Him. But free will undercuts this argument because each of us has a free will. So while our decision to terminate as well as the when and how are already known by God, the right to execute our will is still reserved for us.
Given this then, it would appear that the final judgment we will face might be ever the more frightening since such a decision reflects the antithesis of faith, trust, and hope in Him as our Sovereign Lord. Free will it seems is the problem. It was in garden during the most critical decision making dilemma in human history and it will be at the end of life.
Reading the article paragraph provided in this post again, one can readily hear the pain and anguish such a decision caused both Matthew and Harold. Is Assisted Suicide a Right or a Wrong?
