Horrifying Video of Well Attended Suicide Class and DIY Suicide Kits

This is disturbing. This news report on euthanasia is well worth watching if you have 25 minutes. But most of us don't have that kind of time or we didn't take our Ritalin today so we'll skip it. But at least do yourself a favor and watch two minutes of it starting at about 2:15.

The shocking part is a videotaped suicide class with do-it-yourself suicide kits. And it's better attended than daily Mass in my parish, I'll tell you that.

You can start the video around 2:15 for the creepiest two minutes of video you'll see today.

It's a mystery to me why in this day and age where pain management has come so far we get such an interest in killing oneself to avoid pain. I think one woman says it well. She doesn't talk about pain. She talks about not being able to do what she wants to do when she wants to do it.

Keep praying folks. The right-to-die folks are polling a heckuva lot better than us right-to-life folks.

It's exactly the same as people who talk about the "root causes" of abortion being poverty and desperation. I'm not saying that poor women don't see themselves as poor and desperate, but in real terms the Western poor today have a lot more than they did 50 or 60 years ago. Our idea of how intolerable poverty is, what constitutes a life too deprived to be lived, and what to do about being poor and desperate, has changed.

Oh my God!!

Have mercy on us, my Lord Jesus Christ. Help us to face Satan pretending be a doctor.

My 91yo grandmother has arthritis which greatly inhibits her movement and activity, so such so that she can't cook for herself anymore. Mind you, cooking was a staple activity for her (Most of my memories are of her working in her kitchen), and in general she was a hard-working, highly active person.

Certainly, her current state depresses her from time to time, but in no way would she ever think that her limited mobility, which literally does not allow her to feed herself, would mean that it's time for her to consider ending it all. Even if she can't do the things she could (just a couple of years ago), she still knows firmly she's alive for a purpose. Surely, if she heard something like the ideas presented here, she'd not hesitate to let you know from where they originate--Satan. No chaser.

God bless us.

Blessed John Paul the Great, who showed us how to truly die with dignity and more importantly, with holiness, pray for us now more than ever!

Suicide-promoting liberals committing suicide seems to be a classic "problem that solves itself"...

Fr. Ian Shipley said...

Of course suicide is wrong. But some of these folks who would die without medical intervention should be allowed to die a natural death. In other words if you took away machines, tubes etc...that's not suicide. Obviously if we are talking about giving someone poison that's a different story. Modern medicine tends to be way too interventionist and the motto seems to be keep people alive at all costs. I don't know, to allow death is one thing, to prescribe it is something else.

Clearly, we should remember that: The Lord gives and the Lord takes away.

...yeah, it's more than creepy!, but,
You should see what they do to hospice patients!

Their algorithms for end stage of life are anticipated from 6 mo to 2 yrs.
They eventually medicate the patient right into a coma! Because the family doesn't want to see the "agony" of death. Not very pleasant. Usually no feeding tube and no hydration.

It is a stereotypical myth that people die painlessly, comfortably and quietly. Nothing could be further from the truth!

...must address this,

I am very offended,

...by the cookie cutter, "packaged" social sell job!
...wondering just how many people are actually going to use them and under what pretense!
...this is sooo grim!

great ideas! Never thought of nitrogen. Painless, clean, and safe. I'll get a container for the future. Thanks matt for the link and info. I was going to use co, but it is dangerous to others.

much appreciated!
