    Manny Lewis: Oh, give me a break. When you die, you're dead. There's no afterlife or other life .

    Pam Frampton is on a mission of mercy today . Her examination of the taboo subject of death reveals a side of the human psyche seldom explored in a public forum . The act of dying itself conjures up all kinds of unpleasant feelings . Most of us never even come close to self-actualization in life , so how is it possible to ascertain the certainty of death . In 2002 the Netherlands legalized euthanasia within the framework that euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide are not punishable if the attending physician acts in accordance with criteria of due care . North American conventional practice is to allow a patient the right to refuse treatment and medical attention thereby allowing death with some amount of dignity . As a hospice counsellor I was privileged to have spent countless hours with the dying and more than once , like those of my fellow workers, there was an overwhelming feeling of powerlessness . At this point in time our laws reconize the right to die , but there is no right to assisted death . Excellent article , as this shows us another dimension of Frampton .

    Suicide is the one unforgivable sin; even the one who assists can be forgiven!

    Humans need to suffer like all other creatures. If we don't suffer what has been allotted to us in this life we will have to pay it off in the next. If we think we are doing no wrong by helping others to die before their time, think again!
