This is really a spin-off from the comments on the previous post, where Thomas Storck remarked that ” I think it’s probably ‘natural’ that a non-Christian society will tolerate abortion.” To which I added euthanasia etc. A little while ago I came across a good example: this story about a man who cooperated in his wife’s suicide as an escape from Parkinson’s disease.
If you didn’t believe that man has an eternal destiny for which this world is only a preparation, and that suffering has a meaning, it would be hard not to accept the logic of their decision–why live if life has become more burden than pleasure?
(Sorry for the racy photos on this page, btw: I came across this story while reading another one on a suburban witch. An interesting connection.)
