It was not my intention to start accusing people of being contrary. It's only food for thought. I wanted people to be really honest in this post so that we can keep this topic open. It's a very complicated issue, not completely black and white. And, as posters think about what they are saying, it does dredge up some feelings about the whole issue of death.
Sorry, I know its easy to start that kind of debate, and, no matter what I say, it will probably take on a life of its' own.
