Doctors Debunk Assisted Suicide

Doctors Debunk Assisted Suicide

According to a recent study by two physicians in MD Magazine, not all procedures go as quickly or as peacefully as advertised. In fact, some assisted suicides can last up to four days after ingesting lethal drugs, with patients dying slow, agonizing deaths. Published by Dr. Ronald W. Pies and Dr. Annette Hanson, the pair debunked 12 common myths associated with physician-assisted suicide (PAD).

Since it was not your decision to be, it is not your decision not-to-be.

The disciple of Jesus because they are being molded into the image of Jesus know when to die.

When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. (John 19:30)

Committing self-murder is a tactic used by the enemy of your soul.

The last enemy to be destroyed is death. (1 Corinthians 15:26)

(—“Many patients who request assisted suicide are clinically depressed and could be successfully treated, once properly diagnosed,” the physicians explained. “Between 2008 and 2014, more than 200 psychiatric patients were euthanized by their own request in the Netherlands.”

The physicians then debunked the myth that only patients suffering from terminal illnesses are eligible for assisted suicide. The state of Oregon, in fact, allows “a healthy 20-year-old with insulin-dependent diabetes” to commit suicide with a physician’s help if they so wish it. The problem inherent with assisted suicide, say the physicians, is that a person’s life is ultimately placed into the hands of a panel of experts who determine if the person is acting autonomously.
