everyone has the right to live
everyone can be healed

God has a plan for each person in each situation
whether they cease the opportunity or not is their choice
He didn’t make us robots
First, when you realize that the phrase “terminally ill” applies to all of us. We are all going to die. When someone has a disease that medical science cannot “cure,” a person is typically told they are going to die within a particular time frame.
So, the only difference in someone that is diagnosed “terminally ill” and someone who isn’t, is that medical science has decided to tell the person they have a shorter time to live than they were designed for.
I cannot speak for ALL Christians, but most Christians believe that it is GOD who determines when we live or die, not man. To see someone suffer is horrific and very emotionally painful. To assist someone in dying can be interpruted by some as being merciful, but it takes away the basic premise that only GOD can make that decision, or does it? That is what each Christian must deal with and on a personal basis with GOD.
Since medical science today is about treating symptoms and not “root causes” of disease, a dire prediction of doom from a doctor does NOT necessarily mean the person has no other options and will die as predicted. So a great concern for taking someone’s life that is “terminally ill” can be a great risk because many terminally ill people seek help outside the medical community and have survived and gotten healthy.
good luck to you
