How would the CoC view assisted suicides where a terminally ill man/woman wants to die rather than live in pain?
Personally, I feel it is wrong. Not because God gave us life, and we have no authority over it. (Yes, that is true however).
But for the following reason~: We will all go through old age, and with that is suffering. It seems that the only reason that people have assisted suicides is to ease the suffering of those of their immediate families who are taking care of them. But, this means that the carer feels the burden of taking care of the person in need of care than the love they have or receive from the existance of the person being cared for.
But how would the Church view such actions? Does such cases of suicide fall under the category of "unforgivable sin"?
