Poison - 'end of life choice'

This is something I've given a great deal of thought to. First of all, I don't think anyone can die unless God allows it. That doesn't mean He wants it to happen, but He has to allow it. I've heard of many cases of botched suicide where very often the person winds up worse than they were before they attempted the suicide. So I don't think attempting suicide is a good idea.

As for medical euthanasia I'm in favor of it only when a person has a terminal disease and is in pain that cannot be stopped. This happens with cancer too often. I do not favor euthanasia for any and all reasons and I think that's what Lanolin is worried about. Very often a depressed person might want to die because when he/she's in the deepest parts of the depression he/she just can't see any reason to stay alive. This is why depression is a true illness. But God has a reason He's keeping that person here and once the person comes out of the deep parts of the depression eventually the reason becomes known, even if it takes several years. I know this because I've seen it happen.
