There are plenty of religious people whose views are a bit more flexible in the 21st century.
Religious laws and state laws should be separate, but a lot of the time, they're not.

Just because it's our bodies we don't have a choice in everything, not when it affects society.
So by your point of view you agree with non medical late term abortions? 'Assisting' a mentally ill person commit suicide? If you're going to view everything as a persons right to choice for their body surely more things will come into law as a result.
Brown sugar I know what you mean now thanks for that. Sorry about your family member. It's hard for me to really know what I believe, you've been in the situation and can still say how you feel, I haven't so I have more questions than answers. It's easy to say yes or no now, but in the situation things can change.
I guess everyone has their own opinion on this and I think everyone has the right to say how they want our laws to be. Whether its religious or atheist everyone has a right to say what they want as a law.
This is not as simple as 'my body my choice' Abortion is legal for many many reasons so I really don't see the comparison. 2 seperate issues with their own implications.

For a lot of patients the treatment ..say for cancer is horrible..makes them very ill..they may have a chance at prolonging death..but at a horrible cost..they may get another 6 months of "living" only for it to kill them in the end..why for them do they have to keep going..why for them if they are at peace with dying....not just let them?
It is a truly hard thing for someone to ask a loved one to help them die..BUT it is FAR worse to watch them suffer!!

umm.. for me on those points - I support Abortion being 'legal' as opposed to 'illegal' - but much the same as this issue (take the guidelines I posted from the Netherlands as an example) ...I agree with regulations and restrictions.

But if we want to hand control over to god...well then why are we attempting to treat people at all? Obviously if god wants them to survive liver cancer, they will. Without us giving them chemo/surgery/radiation.
(honestly curious-cause that argument can't just be limited to death if you're going to follow it, right? )

I think the comparison to choosing when to have an elective c/s is like playing God, I don't agree. The individual person is not choosing when to be born, the baby isn't communicating and setting their due date. The mother and dr may choose that date, but not the baby. So to grow up and then be able to choose the day you die and have people help you die is quite different.
Yes I do also believe God chooses the day you're born and the day you die.

From Christian standpoint I think that a lot of Christians have missed one very important element here. God gave us free will!
Therefore, as a christian, I feel uncomfortable taking that will away. What right do I have to take away free will that God has given them?
I hate euthanasia and abortion with a passion! I could never do it or agree with it but I do not have the right to take the choice away from others. They can choose to do what they will to their own bodies - end of story!
There shouldn't be any argument. No one is asking YOU to do it...only to allow others to keep their own free will as God has given them.
