… but to keep you entertained, we got something for you – a little food for thought maybe? In case you’re not interested, just hop on over to our Sitemap to find what you’re looking for.
Still there? So, here we go with our li’l story.
Everybody knows they will die some day. Yet nobody will ever know, when and how they’re going to die.
There are basically three prospects, let’s call these death options:
- Unnatural, e.g. by car accident, drowning in lake or the like – bad luck
- Natural, e.g. by heart failure or fatal stroke, dead on the spot – good(ish) luck
- Natural, e.g. of age respectively general bodily dysfunction(s), this one inexorably leads to another three death options:
- Bad, severely stressful, but in little pain and relatively short time – quite mercyful
- Worse than bad, more severely stressful and in much pain and not so short time – quite cruel and less mercyful
- Worst of all, horribly bad, most severely stressful and in excrutiating pain and seemingly endless time – most cruel and least mercyful
We surely cannot choose between 1. and 2. and have no influence on whenever whichever will occur, whatsoever. However, we can prepare ourselves with regard to 3. and the subsequent – it lies in everyone’s own hands absolutely.
Get yourself an Advance Directive, set it up accordingly and, what’s more, consider fighting for an option, which is grotesquely, undeniably and disturbingly delinquent:
Fight for a constitutionally secured right of access to Assisted Dying
