Dissident theologian Hans Küng, 85, has written in his new book "Erlebte Menschlichkeit, the third part of his memoirs, that he is considering Euthanasia for himself.
He states he could not write properly anymore, and his eyesight was decreasing noticeably. Küng says he suffers from Parkinson’s disease, and does not want to continue to live as a “shadow of my former self”. “A human has a right to die when he sees no hope to live a, in his own view, worthy life”, states Küng. If he were to take this step, it would be one last stand against the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, which he is known for defying repeatedly.
