Re: “Activist wants changes in anti-abortion movement

I appreciate City printing Hannah Murphy' s interview . While I don't agree with everything she says, she provides a perspective we seldom see.
I essentially agree with her stance: killing is wrong. I feel that taking another person's life is wrong exept when there is no other option. Therfore I am opposed to capital punishment and abortion and am never eager to see war (but realize it cannot always be avoided) . I don't include assisted suicide as something I am strictly opposed to because that involves deciding to take your own life, not someone else's. I am uncomfortable with it, but will not judge someone for wanting to end their own suffering.
I do feel very strongly we need to call it what it is . When a person requests necessary assistance to end their life that is by definition assisted suicide. The only reason someone such as a recent letter submitter would want to rename it something as nondescript as "death with dignity " is because that person feels suicide is automatically shameful. I don't feel that way. I do feel calling assisted suicide "death with dignity " implies that the alternative - choosing to live until your life comes to a natural end - is not dignified. Surely the author of the letter did not intend to shame those who are termilly ill and do not opt to end their own lives. There are many ways to die in a "dignified" manner.
