Sanctity of human life

“For your own lifeblood, too, I will demand an accounting:
from every animal I will demand it,
and from one man in regard to his fellow man
I will demand an accounting for human life.”

via USCCB | NAB – February 17, 2011

One thing that concerns me is how this lack of respect for life is spreading like wild fire. I was reading a blog recently that I had enjoyed up to that point and then the author goes on to say that if and when her husband and herself reach a point of disability in their old age, they have chosen to commit suicide. How desperately sad is that? God has entrusted us with life from the moment of conception until it’s natural end…our job is to guard it and make the most of it. We are not to play God and choose when to end it…either for ourselves or anyone else.  I really dislike that these things become ‘fashionable’. Can you imagine society getting to the point where this is just expected of you…someone not wanting to die, but making a choice based on what they think their loved ones want for them?

By choosing the ‘easy way out’ they end up missing so much…there are so many graces to be received as we age and our physical bodies deteriorate. As we diminish, God has the opportunity to shine forth strongly…will we let Him?
