I wouldn’t want to live if I was in their position.
Since when do paralyzed people not have a say in whether they live or not?
Yes, please do explain to me since when do paralyzed people not have a say in their existence? I marvel at the mentality of whoever created this, and those who claim they would rather die than be paralyzed. It saddens and baffles me to think that this kind of mentality even exists.
If you had told me ten years ago that I would spend the rest of my life in chronic pain, with many physical limitations and constant medical intervention with countless medications that control the way my body functions, I probably would not have been very happy. But, contrary to some people’s view, my life did not end. I may not be paralyzed, but I am disabled and limited in many ways. And by no means does that make my life any less meaningful. I am alive, and I live my life on my own terms.
Who in their right mind would assume that physical disability makes you automatically unwilling to live? That is cruel. Yes, I do have a Living Will with certain stipulations when it comes to medical treatment. I chose to limit medical intervention when it comes to extreme situations, such as lack of brain activity. In that case I do not wish to have my life prolonged with artificial means. That is my personal decision, and it was made in case I was unable to communicate, which in the case of brain activity ceasing, is pretty obvious. But those instances are absolutely not comparable to paralysis in any way, or any other disability.
Human stupidity knows no bounds, and the statement in this picture is a perfect example of that.
