I challenge the opinion of the “Executive committee of the Assembly of Quebec’s Catholic Bishops” in regards to their medieval and closed minded opinion on Bill 52.
I doubt very much that there would be any comfort in my last days in this physical existence if I was dying of a horrible
debilitating, painful, end of life affliction. Sure, wipe my head with a cold cloth, inject more drugs into me. At day’s end, if the pain I am feeling, suffering alone, should awaken me in the middle of the night, causing me to scream out in agony and, if
I say “no more, I can’t take it”, then the final decision is mine and, mine alone to take/make. Dignity, assuage my suffering, humanity.
I support bill 52 to its extent. No person, assembly or community has the right to tell me that, in my final moments of unbearable suffering and grief, what I should or should not be entitled to,
especially when it comes to assuaging the anguish of my family’s bereavement.
My family should not suffer this, to see me in excruciating pain during my final moments of life, gentlemen, how dare you attempt to force your opinion on us or the Catholic community!
No doubt, many of your “sheep” will agree with you, just because. I however, a Catholic myself, will challenge any and all opinions.
