Questioner: When a person is suffering from a chronic illness for which there is no cure, it does not seem right to prolong their suffering. What is wrong with helping them end their suffering? In this respect it is hard to believe that if we help him by mercy killing, that his suffering will continue in the next life.
Dadashri: No one has a right to do that, whatsoever. We have a right to treat them and take care of them, but not to kill them.
Questioner: Where is the benefit for us in prolonging their suffering?
Dadashri: What is the benefit in killing, then? When you kill a suffering man, you will lose your birthright to be born as a human again. It goes against the principles of humanity.
