Brittany Maynard’s fate is not one that I would wish on anyone. She has a malignant brain tumor that will slowly and painfully kill her.
While others would rely on modern medicine as they slowly become a vegetable and become confined to a hospital bed, Brittany has decided to end her life on her terms.
There are some who have condemned her decision. They believe that she should wait until G-d decides it is time. While I respect their right to voice their opinion, I disagree with them.
What Brittany has chosen to do is not suicide. Suicide is done at a moment of extreme emotion and desperation. Knowing what is facing her and her family, she had chosen to live and die on her terms.
We should all be so lucky to live and die in the same way.
