regarding your article last week about assisted suicide.
Our bodies are merely a means of making it possible to live here. We are pure spirit, the stuff of the stars, and are entirely responsible for the maintenance of our own survival suits, with medical assistance.
If we become so ill that we cannot bear it any more, with no hope of improvement, we have every right to leave that survival suit.
The important thing is to ensure that everyone who loves us knows what we are doing and why. That it is not a question of failure on their part, simply a refusal on our part to suffer any longer.
Assisted suicide, though, should only be undertaken if it is absolutely impossible for the sufferer to depart unaided.
