Our government has presented legislation to allow doctor assisted death in Canada.
Despite the vast majority of Canadians in favour of it, it seems to be a very visibly divisive issue.
Is it? OR are the opponents of it just really good at getting our attention?
This discussion has been occurring in debate classes for decades, and is no less explosive now.
One side of the debate says this legislation goes too far, the other says, this does not go far enough.
We should never stop asking questions when giving others the responislbity to take a life.
But that does not mean there isn’t justification in doing it.
In the end, I believe in the freedom of choice.
If you don’t believe, don’t do it.
But should those prevent others who do?
If you are not hurting anyone else, doesn’t every individual have the right to make their choice to live or die?
How much more humane can you get?
