The power of choice…

http://www.thebrittanyfund.org/

Has everyone seen this?  Why is it that, when someone’s personal choice is made public, everyone and their mother thinks that they have the right to persecute that person’s decision??

It’s 2014…have we really not realized as a society that there is, and always will be, diversity??

Some people live their lives based on what they believe religiously, others on what was meant to be will be, and even others on the luck of the draw.  There are about a kazillion different philosophies for mankind to take stake in…who is to say which is the end all, be all??

I just noticed that I was using double question marks – I think it’s because I realize now that we will never be a society of people that accept people different from ourselves.  While I’m not suggesting that we are all inside our own little bubbles, everyone has SOMETHING that they are a Judgy McJudgerson about, even if it’s something minute.  I know I am guilty of it.  So, maybe we should all just accept THAT realization and MOVE ON!!!

    I’ve been following this and it makes me so incredibly sad for her and her family. It amazes me how people can judge what others do, especially when it doesn’t affect them personally in any way. People deal with things in the best ways they feel fit, that is all we can do as people, you know? No matter what choices people make, others will always find a way to critique!

    I totally Agree Sara!! It’s our RIGHT to believe whatever we want! I understand that some people don’t agree with others choices, but that’s the beauty of it!!! You don’t have to!!

    I think this assisted suicide needs to be carefully done. In general, not just her. Sure, it’s choice. But what about years down the road, and the line is blurred… I don’t know. I’m not saying she can’t do it. I’m saying we got to be careful in accepting assisted suicide so readily.
    What about when a child is diagnosed with cancer? Do the parents have the right to plan a date for their child to die?
    How do we know with absolute certainty when someone will die from cancer, or live?

      You ask all poignant questions, and bringing up a case where it is a child hits right at the heart. But then again, I have absolutely no idea what I would do in that situation – and hope I never find out!
