Euthanasia Or Must A Person Die By Himself

565.02Question: The Spanish Parliament passed a law allowing people over the age of eighteen who suffer unbearably from incurable diseases to voluntarily die.

“‘Today we have become a country that is more humane, fairer and freer,’ Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez tweeted just minutes after the vote. The euthanasia law, widely demanded by society, has finally become a reality.” (

How do you feel about this voluntary departure of a person from life?

Answer: My attitude to it is this: a person must die by himself.

Question: Despite the suffering and all that he is experiencing?

Answer: When Baal HaSulam was asked about this, he said that a person has no right to interfere in this: how to leave and when to leave is not his business. And even if he has the opportunity, of course, it’s none of his business.

You must continue to exist, no matter how bad you feel. Take your medication, do whatever you want! But in no other way.

My father was dying for a very long time. And the only thing I agreed with the doctors was to give him painkillers. But, in principle, if you understand Baal HaSulam correctly, then painkillers are also not good.

About myself, I can’t say that I have such confidence in myself, that if such huge problems come, huge suffering, that I would agree to continue to suffer and worry. I’m not sure for myself. How can a person be confident about this?

Comment: How can you cut to the truth all the time! Like that in the face! You say that a person is weak. And you even say that about yourself!

My Response: Of course, I’m weak! Who are we?! Midges! Who is a person other than the desire to enjoy?!

I’m sure any person you just pinch will immediately agree to everything. In short, a person is a desire to enjoy.

So, we will live, and what is there next, how God will send it.
