Good for you, Arti. Different opinions make for interesting discussions I think. I was raised LDS (Mormon), and that church's official stand is very like the Catholic Church's.
I watched my mother (who was very Mormon) die of cancer and while she hated the saying "Endure to the end", she never mentioned wanting to do otherwise. She did, however, have a DNR (do not resucitate) order and also specified that no medications be given her should she get any other kind of medical condition. Even with Fentanyl patches and morphine she was not comfortable.
We are all here to choose for ourselves, and I for one am glad there are options, whether or not I need them. Oh, just discovered that the state of Oregon has physician assisted suicide (they can prescribe the drugs, but do not administer them).
Personally, I can't imagine the hell of a working mind and a useless body, and would rather take my chances on the Other Side. I seriously doubt that a father would want his children to suffer unbearably with these diseases, for what? Testing you? Testing your family and allowing them to "serve" you? Ugh. I as a mother couldn't stand that for my children!
But, that is MY opinion you see.
