If You Suffer From A Mental Disorder, Doctors Are More Than Willing To End Your Life

Society is supposed to protect the least of these – those with intellectual and physical disabilities, or emotional disorders.

But instead of protecting the most vulnerable, one woman who suffered from severe emotional disorders, including borderline personality disorder had a death wish.

Her doctors could have steered her down a different path, encouraging her to seek help, and showing her the value of life – but they didn’t.

In fact, they did just the opposite.

As it turns out, instead of healing this young woman, they killed her.

Faithwire reported:

“Aurelia suffered from borderline personality disorder from a young age and often heard voices in her head.  

She would experience episodes of psychosis and severe depression.  

After a long battle for the right to die, she was granted permission at the turn of the new year.  

“I think that after such a rotten life I am entitled to a dignified death – people who have a serious illness get a chance for a worthy ending, so why is it so difficult for people who are psychologically [ill]?” she said.”

Any doctor with sense should have taken her statement, and understood her extreme emotional distress needed to be dealt with.

But no one stepped in.

In fact, instead of helping Aurelia, or encouraging her, they provided a lethal injection, pumping poison through her veins, and now she’s dead.

Clearly, someone who does not have the typical mental capacity to make rational decisions should not be able to decide to take her own life.

If a child came up to its mother and asked to die, is that child able to make such a call?

Of course not.

The same should be true with Aurelia, but now she’s gone.

And euthanasia is a slippery slope, which could have disastrous consequences.

National Review reported:

“Cases in the Netherlands show the most troubling reality of euthanasia laws: their widening use based on subjective criteria. Euthanasia is advertised as “dignified death” for those suffering from a terminal illness.  

But the euthanizing of a young woman on grounds that she suffered from a mental illness shows the false advertising of the “death with dignity” movement.

When an apparently healthy young adult can legally end her life because of her mental illness, it raises legitimate questions of where that trajectory ends.

Where the practice is prohibited, advocates are quick to highlight stories of bone-jarringly sad situations of patients with perhaps a neurological cancer slowly crippling their cognitive and physical abilities. Testimonials from family members are promoted to tug at heartstrings, appealing to lawmakers to pass laws that enable loved ones to be relieved of their suffering.”

Don’t buy into the lie that people are better off dead than alive.

God is the author of life, and He is the one who gives and takes away.

We’ve got to stop stigmatizing mental disorders.

People who suffer from emotional disorders need counseling, healing, and recovery.

Do you think a mentally ill person can make the call whether to end their own life?
