When legislatures, the doctors, nurses can decide your quality of life is such that you should be denied medical care or fluids and sent to a death institute called "hospice" to hasten your death, then we have lost our God given right of free will to chose of life and our freedom to choose to live regardless of our physical pain or disabilities. As my late husband said, "If you are able to know and love God, you have quality of life."
God gave humans life, free will and the choice to either live a life following Jesus's footsteps or to ignore them and go to hell.
If we decide to end our life because it is not good enough then we have disrespected what God has given us, therefore we do not deserve a place in heaven.
The quality of life argument justifies murder which is against the ten commandments in Christianity as abortion and euthanasia is accepted.
Considering life and the human being in that image of God throws light on the whole argument...That is we are created according to a Divine plan, that takes man and woman beyond this life which is simply a journey of a pilgrim. Imagine travelling by bus to destination B and you fall in love of luxury with the bus seat ...That is how incredulous is the excessive stress on Quality of Life,
Human beings have been individually created by God and derive their integrity and worth from the fact that they are made on the image of God. A sane rational human being helps others and NOT destroy or kill them, with the excuse that they do not have a quality life!! That's a very good excuse.......... For those that do not want to either take care of them or spend medication on them.
Many believe that quality of life is so important because it is bad to be in agonizing pain, or grow up in a difficult state or simply if one cease to function. So we should put them out of there misery or let them do it themselves. You know I can understand why. But it is through difficulty that one can find quality of life. A Diamond is a highly valued object in are world. It takes Extreme pressure and temperature to form it. But then it is in cased in rock and it takes large sums of money to extract it from the earth and the rock, then once extracted it looks rough and not shiny and nice, somebody has to take great care to remove the Rough and cut the diamond into the desire form. Then some one has to take great care to seat it into a ring or other jewelry that people highly value. You will find many people in difficult situations just quits because it is painful just to continue. But then you will find others who have went through the same problems, the same pain and many times it takes love and care of others but once they have made it through they appreciate the small things and then they have more quality then any others who have not been through those problems. People have re awoke from comas, people have lived longer than they are predicted to live. People had received debilitating injuries and learn to make the most of it and there are people who have grown up in a harsh life and become public speakers on getting through tough times. It take love and care but people should be worth are love and care and not just there grave.
Is it fair if you have a life yet you think it is ok to throw away another?
No. Some people argue that there is no point keeping a person alive if they are in a vegetative state but the real truth is that there is always a chance they will survive. If you suddenly fell into a deep coma, how would you feel if somebody decided to switch the machine off?
Every life deserves to have the chance to become the best it can be. We should be helping others with that goal. A person's best does not have to meet YOUR definition of best.
If the quality of life becomes more important in our filthy, culture of rot, we will see more and more murders of not only babies, but the elderly, the sick, the slow minded, the handicapped, and even under-achievers or undesirable races. It will lead to any life being snuffed out when some idiot decides another life's quality doesn't meet the standard. WAKE UP people!
The sanctity of life is more important than the quality of life, because the people who are for abortion have already been born. Each person should be given the chance to have a life, because they might be able to make it better than the circumstances that they were born into.
Quality of life is more important than sanctity of life. This is because of the fact that life without quality isn't worth living in most cases. Quality over quantity is very much the case. A good example of this is when the fact that we're overpopulated, but most of us are suffering.
I would choose the quality of life over the sanctity of it any day. What good is living if you're a brain dead patient in a vegetative state? How is that benefiting anyone? The sanctity proponents also seem to forget that medical advances prolonging the lives of such people essentially go against God's will that they die.
The term, sanctity of life, can mean many different things to many different people and there is not a common, nailed down definition of what the "sanctity of life" really refers to. That makes it really difficult to compare it to the quality of life, since that is a well defined term that most people will identify with right away. While quality of life can vary quite dramatically, it is more important than the sanctity of life simply because it has a stronger, more universal definition.

If you take both arguments to the extreme:
Someone lives for 100 years, but hates it the whole time, then that is what most people will consider hell.
If someone lives for 10 years, but loves every second of it and is happy and consenting to their death, then they are what most people will consider to be in heaven.
That is why quality is more valued that sanctity of life.
What is the point of living if happiness is not the main point in life everyone needs happiness in there life everyone experience happiness it is true xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Well are you willing to let some one with a sever mental physical condition or pain keep living there life just for the sake of living , while you leave them to suffer? This is not right. If they are at this point and they want to die that is there right, there decision, not yours!
The Sanctity of Life is the idea of the sacredness of human life.
In the bible it is clear that there is a sanctity of life, ‘So God created man in his own image’ (Genesis 1:27). This suggests that most Christians believe that Sanctity of life is more important than the Quality of Life as it is God given. And that it is interfering with God.
Other religions such as Judaism and Islam both believing that God is the Creator and all creation is good, mainly agree with Christianity on the Sanctity of Life.
However, some people believe that the Quality of life is more important because they think that if someone is in pain (mentally or physically) and is unhappy, they should be allowed to be put out of their misery. For example, Daniel James, a 22 year old rugby player in the prime of his life was paralysed from the chest down after a spine injury during a training session. 15 months after the accident he chartered a plane to Switzerland and took his life at the euthanasia clinic, Dignitas.
Most people stand in the middle, where they say that Quality of Life only overalls in extreme situations where there is no hope for the person to recover from whatever situation they are in i.e. a perpetual coma. So they generally would try and do anything to save the person but only if the person could have any hope of recovery.
In conclusion, I think that quality of life is more important because if someone is in pain or suffering it isn’t fair for them to live through it.
Without quality in life like basic human rights or being able to support yourself in the simplest of ways is allot more important than the spiritual level of life that sanctity is referred to as in religious scripture. Without quality of life you do not have the qualities that life is described to have and therefore you should be able to make life ending decisions.
