There is no way that we can know how the 'soul' feels - obviously, after physical death we would know!(Original post by Little Kitten)
Seems to me that if you believe that a person has a soul then given the evidence of the post-mortem then you would have to agree that they did the right thing. I think the BBC report [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4096256.stm] put it slightly better than the one on Yahoo, saying essentially that she was blind and had no ability to react with her environment in any way, shape or form. I imagine for the soul it would be something akin to being trapped in a box, not knowing what was going on and unable to escape. I think it would be very difficult to say that in this case the right thing was not done.
If you say the right thing was done then we go again into the debate on euthanasia which has been 'done to death' (forgive the pun) on this forum.

As a contrast to the first link on this thread which was published by the 'assisted suicide' organisation and consequently has a degree of bias, I am providing an alternative link which could also be considered biased - all for the sake of balance! I am a Libran so balance is what I seek.

Oddly enough, many of the teachings of the Bible have been codified into our law.
