Gosh, sure is lucky he had the choice to have an elective surgery, huh? Sure is great that the Catholic church thinks going to the hospital for an elective surgery is OK, if it can potentially improve and lengthen your quality of life.
How thoughtful of them, to let him choose how he’d like to be cared for. I mean, could you imagine having the procedure in place that could potentially allow him to lead a better life, but him being unable to make that choice because his religion said that only God could play God and that humans had no right to interfere with the body’s “natural” processes? Like, say, birth and death?
He sure is lucky to be a white man with choices. White men sure are lucky that way.
