Death is personal

You gave your life to this world right or wrong. Asking permission to end it is absurd, because death is personal.

Death is personal, it always has been, just like the pain and suffering the individual is enduring.

One’s beliefs, feelings and future (or lack thereof) is purely one’s own. The intrusion into one’s life by people who do not bear the standard that they tell one to live by is outrageous.

Having said that, I also do not support the position of the government, the judiciary, the police or society in general on these end-of-life issues.

You paid the cost of your own demise and it’s nobody’s business but your own. At least at the end of your life.

You gave your life to this world right or wrong. Asking permission to end it is absurd, because death is personal and that’s the way it’s always been.
