The Terri Schivo case brought a lot of attention to the pro life argumentand debates with all of us. I realized that I nor anyone else would ever want to be put in that situation.
But after lots of prayer and deep thinking I do have a few questions.
Today we have the technology to keep us living, whether by a breathing tube, or a feeding tube and many other ways we can keep people alive. The question on whether or not to pull the plug or the tube or any other means to volunteer to end ones life, to me is not the question we must ask. But have we in our current modern technology already gone to far? If the Terri situation happened prior to todays technology she would have died, so have we gone too far in allowing techology and doctors to keep us a live? And if we have where did we need to draw the line?
We are told that we cannot use birth control and condoms because it prevents life, do other modern techonlogy and just common since in the same respect prevent God’s plan for our death?
I hope and pray that the Catholic Church can come out and speak ex cathedra on this subject, when can we keep one of our loved ones a live by our current and future technology wonders, and when must we let go and allow God produce his miracle through death by giving us all I hope eternal life.
Can Pro Life go to far?
Something to think about, pray about and talk about, I look forward to reading the various comments
