I'm just surprised that there are people who consider this to be anywhere near comparable to euthanasia. I can sort of see where this idea might come from, but I still can't bring myself to see them as even anywhere near equivalent. Death is natural. Sustaining death is not.

I hope that doesn't come across as an argument. I'm just expressing my (ever-growing) shock at the failings of society.

And, while I think it's a slippery slope, being from the country I can understand mercy killing.

I await patiently
the gift promised to me.
