The right to die


Did God intend for man or woman to “live” connected to machines to keep them breathing?  People accept the death of a six-year-old child by aerial bombardment or economic sanctions and defend the life of a six-week-old fetus. I personally live in a country where children still die from inadequate medical care and hunger.

I am a sixty something wife,mother, sister, grandmother and friend. I started blogging as a coping mechanism during my beautiful daughter's final journey. Vic was desperately ill for 10 years after a botched back operation. Vic's Journey ended on 18 January 2013 at 10:35. She was the most courageous person in the world and has inspired thousands of people all over the world. Vic's two boys are monuments of her existence. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. I will miss you today, tomorrow and forever my Angle Child. https://tersiaburger.wordpress.com

  1. if more people would talk about this we might be farther along in the evolution of supporting our fellow humans who are suffering. instead we stay quiet and let a few mouths speak for us. i for one do not intend to end my life in a hospital on machines.

    1. I just watched a beautiful, poignant program called “How to die in Oregon”. I so wish that we had similar laws in South Africa. Thank you for reading my blog.

      1. The amazing thing is that most people just cling to life. I am so sorry for people like Tony Nicklinson who is trapped in a body and system that have both failed him.
