I live in Oregon and before my mother went through a terminal illness two and half years ago, I was stead fast against my state's suicide law. But that's before watching my mother die a slow painful death. It was unbearable for everyone, especially my mother. She did not choose to take her own life. Instead she chose to fight to the very last day, which showed me her strength and character that I look back on with pride to this day. Ultimately I would say our faith prevented this option, but I would be lying if her ending her life on her terms was not at least thought about. My only point is that if someone has never endured a situation like this with a close loved one, they might want to wait to pass judgement on decisions that are made.
