Brittany Maynard was 29- year-old former athlete, who has suffering from the debilitating headaches for a years.  In January, 2014 Maynard found out she has brain cancer and has ten years to live, but the situation gets worse after she had done the surgeries to stop the tumor for growing. The Glioblastoma Multiforme is the most aggressive brain cancer, and it grows and spreads to other parts of the brain very quickly. And now, Maynard has been told that she has only six month left to live because the tumor in her brain had come back and more aggressive.

Maynard knows that there is no cure for her disease, and it is a horrible way to die.  She does not want her family watching her dying slowly and suffering like she does, so Maynard starts to research death with dignity. She thinks that death with dignity is the best option for her and her family. Oregon, Washington, and Vermont, Montana, and New Mexico were the states allowed death dignity laws in the United States, and so Maynard and her husband have left their house in California and moved to Oregon to take advantage of the state’s assisted suicide law. Then, Maynard plans to die in her home surrounded by her mother, stepfather, husband and best friend on November 1st two days after her husband’s birthday.

Maynard has joined the Compassion & Choices, which is the oldest and largest organization working to improve care and expand choice at the end of life. Maynard did this because she wants everyone in the world to have the choice to die with dignity as she has.  Many people argue over this issues. Some people agree and understand Maynard’s choice, but other people think that the God chooses the day you die, not you.

Do you think people have the choice to end their life and death under their own control?  I have very mixed feelings about this.  I understand why she feels this way but I still do not think she should kill herself because life is suffering and you can not shoose your suffering but you can choose how you live with it.

    This article is very heart breaking. Though i do understand why society argues agianst the death dignity law, i sympathize with Maynard. I understand her decision because it is a long painful process with this disease. If there is no curing it, why would you want your family to watch you suffer each and every day knowing there is no hope? If i were in Maynard, i would want to take advantage of the law. Think about it, even though whatever day you die it is going to be a memorial day for your loved ones. So why not have all the ones who are truly close to your heart there to send you off? They will be the last faces you see knowing your leaving surrounded with love and support. On the other hand i understand why americans are against the law, God should choose your day to go, but we dont know the pain that cancer patients experience. Would you want to watch your loved lose a peice of their life everyday?

    Its really sad story. I think we should choose to live even if we suffer because there is greater meaning in choosing life over death. I dont know how I would feel if someone told me that I will die soon. I believe that if this happened to me I will keep it a secret not to hurt anyone else in my family. I will try anything for my son although I will not be strong enough to leave him. I think it is stronger to choose life even if you are suffering.

    Nicely written! This world is filled with so much prejudice and hate. Personally, I believe that she shouldn’t have the right to take her own life. Life is a struggle, but she has to push through it! If she already knows that taking her life is a sin, then she knows her fate. Prayer is powerful. God judges us accordingly and we can only live on faith.

    this is really sad for Brittany and i know it was hard for her to decide on choosing to die when she want to or wait till the cancer takes over the whole brain and then take her away. In my opinion i believe the lord chooses the day you die and knowing that your still alive the lord is by your side fighting for you to live a little longer and for that you should be praying, being positive, and being around your family and friends. who knows you might beat cancer butt because the lord made miracle happen and made you healthy again. If i was in her position i would not take the pill and keep fighting, praying,and being positive, and if cancer beat me, at least know i tried and i did not give up.

    In my opinion i think we should enjoy the rest of our lives even though its tough knowing you wont live for long. Doctors could find any disease we have and could tell us we have few days to live but honestly in a day anything could change if God wanted it to because he is the one who could probably have the cure to anything.

    Brittany Maynard is going through a hard time in which she has a brain tumor. She has been told she has about six months to live and i think she is having a hard time dealing with this. Since she is having a hard time to deal with this, i think in her mind the only way to end the pain and struggling is to end her life. Even though some people think this is wrong, she has the right to choose if she wants to end her life and cut off her struggling and pain of anticipating her death. I feel bad for Brittany because she can’t control that situation she is in and it is a bad one. If ending her life makes her happy because of struggling through this tumor then let her do it. I don’t think someone should be able to end their life if they don’t have a life threatening illness because that has no real purpose. Hopefully Brittany gets better and decides not teo kill herself because it would be sad for that to happen.

    Personally I think she shouldn’t decide to take her life because even though she is suffering she should enjoy what time she has left because we only have one life.Even at tough times we need to push through it to spend more time with family.

    I wouldn’t wish cancer upon my worst enemy its the devil in disguise , In my opinion i feel as though nobody should have to watch anybody suffer or suffer themselves. But in her situation she only has six months to live and there is no cure. If i was in her shoes I would enjoy every last minute of seeing my love ones that i can and let my dying day come itself.
