Freewriting: comparison and contrast

Ok, this is just going to be some freewriting for my english class.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

For this essay I think I'm going to go with a very controversial topic: Euthanasia (physician-assisted suicide). Now I'm sure that just reading that you take a side. There really isn't much of a middle ground with this topic. I'm just going to have to do some research. I think I need to find some better terms to call them. You would think "pre-choice" would fit, but most people think of abortion when they think of that phrase. So what would be the "Pro ____" or "Anti ______" of euthanasia. hummm Maybe "pro choice" does kind of fit here. So if you are of the coherent mind to stop taking your pills / drugs and if that might speed up the enable?

My view on this is that you should be able to go when YOU want too. If you are only given six months left. Why should you have to wait it out if you didn't want to? Maybe you already got your affairs in order. Maybe you were living alone with no family left. Maybe you didn't even have a home. So why shouldn't you be able to choose the when, where, how of the last chapter in your book of life?

There are a few other topics to this that I don't think I'm going to go into. Like God. The thing with God is that not everyone believes in God. Not everyone believes in the same God. So that brings us back to "why should your God a person that you believe in, affect my life?" There is just way to much to get into for that. Not even going to touch it, other to say that I'm not going to touch it maybe.
