I agree with Geoff Rogers on one point only. He says "our laws should be based on observable reality". So take your blinkers off, Mr Rogers.
The evidence for the existence of God can be clearly seen in the wonders of the universe, and therefore God warns us in Romans 1 that nobody will be without excuse on judgement day. People choose to ignore the evidence so they can do what they like, foolishly thinking they are not answerable to anyone. Take God out of the equation and we can legalise anything. All kinds of evil can be justified.
You mockingly talk about faith in God, Mr Rogers, but let me tell you it takes more faith to believe we descended from monkeys (where did they come from by the way?) or that we and the whole universe resulted from a giant explosion out of nothing. Come on! Get real.
The euthanasia lobby is loud and forceful with regular letters on these pages trying to deceive us. The pain factor is not the issue at all, it's about usurping God's power and control over us. Did we have a say in our birth? Why then should we have a say in our death?
Nobody has mentioned near-death experiences yet. How do you explain them, Mr Rogers? When describe their soul/spirit leaving the body and can accurately report back all that was going on and said while clinically dead? What about those who see Angels and meet Jesus in heaven? Some I know have even seen hell. They come back changed people with a different view on life after death and the reality of Jesus Christ.
