August 12, 2016 – Photos: Californian Woman With ALS Commits Suicide Hours After Lavish End Of Life Party 

On July 23, a 41-year-old artist battling ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a progressive neurodegeneative disease that affects never cells in the brain and spinal cord) staged a low-key end of life party with family members and close friends.

The terminally ill was diagnosed with the incurable disease in 2013 and months after California approves assisted suicide for the terminally ill, Betsy Davis took her own life.

Over 30 people attended Betsy’s end of life party that held at a home in Southern California mountain town of Ojai.

She worked out a detailed schedule for the gathering on the weekend of July 23-24, including the precise hour she planned to slip into a coma.

And just one rule: No crying in front of her.

The 2-day party which held on July 23 and 24 ended on a very sober note as Betsy shared her plans with her guests.

Hours after the event, she looked out at her last sunset and took some suicide drugs prescribed to her by her doctor at 6:45 p.m. with her caretaker, her doctor, her massage therapist and her sister by her side.

Betsy died four hours later.

  1. Committing evil and calling it end of life party! Nothing one will not hear in this world. This one that you took your own life in front of friends and well wisher, I hope you RIP. God knows the best

  2. I don’t know if I should say rest in peace. .she even have a big smile on her face. The laws in the western world something is complicated.

  3. She is now crying hard and seriously agitating because of the pain she is subjected to in hell at moment. She perished because of her lack of knowledge of God’s word. Only the giver of life-God Almighty has the right to take or terminate human life at His own appointed time. Whenever you commit suicide with the hope of ending your suffering, pain, shame, redidicules, oppression, and so on, know for sure that is just the beginning of everlasting torment in hell. Please guys, whatever situation your are currently going through in life, please suicide should not even cross your mind. We have no right or justification to kill or terminate human life except in self defense and in times of war. Policemen and our military men have civil obligation to defence and protect us from deadly harms against barbaric people like Boko Haram, armed robbery gang, and other deadly criminals that want to harm the populace. In their quest to defence and protect us, they can use deadly force to stop dangerous individuals. But suicide will land you in the worse of the worse situation or in everlasting torment of a place called hell.

  4. COUNTRIES of the West, with the US leading, take pleasure in passing laws that are direct affront to God. And I can’t imagine how those people were able to smile and laugh heartily, knowing they had gathered to encourage their friend to kill herself. To them, it was mercy killing; it was doing her good. But should their eyes be opened to see her final abode, they would know that they had done her the worst thing ever.

  5. OMG, so sad, how can u take d life u cannot give, I know ur life would av been hell on earth bcos of ur condition, but why give up on life completely.
    And for those that attended d party I don’t know how u can all live with urselves, knowing fully well what she is about to do, I can never attend such a gathering, its like u all encouraged her to kill herself. God knows best, I wish and pray u rest in peace.

  6. am not in support of what she did but you people most also consider the fact that “do she derives joy in taking her own life”..she is battling a very serious pain that makes her useless and mind you the sickness won’t claim her life she will live for as long as it is written but useless and helpless in pain and suffering..EUTHANASIA is not just something you venture into it is actually different from suicide because the law approves it…i hope God grant her eternal peace as it isnot her wish to die now…i wish you rest in peace……#IT_CAN_ONLY_GET_BETTER

  7. I SEE A LOT OF ********* COMMENTS ON THIS ISSUE, AND IT JUST MAKES ME FEEL SAD AND ASHAME FOR MY PEOPLE, DOES ANY OF YOU READ THE ARTICLE? DO YOU KNOW WHAT ALS IS? DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT SHE WENT THROUGH? AND WHY DO YOU *****LIKE TO THREATENING PEOPLE WITH YOUR********R LIFE HELL FIRE THAT NOBODY HAVE A PROOF OF? SINCE YOUR ******* TO HELL FOR EVERYTHING, WHAT OPTION DOES ******* OR ANY OF YOU GENIUSES HAS FOR THIS LADY? CAN YOU EVEN COMPREHEND HOW MUCH PAIN SHE WAS IN? SHE HAS BECAME COMPLETELY USELESS TO HERSELF? ANY ONE THAT THINKS SHE DERIVED ANY PLEASURE IN THIS SAD SAD EVENT SHOULD GET THEIR ******* OUT. MAYBE YOU SHOULD PUT YOURSELF IN SOMEONE’S ELSE’S SHOE SOMETIME BEFORE YOU *******O CONDEMN THEM.
    ******, WHERE IS YOUR F#[email protected] COMPASSION!! ****** PEOPLE MY *****…..
    WHAT DO YOU DO IF THERE’S A DYING DONG IN AN EXCRUCIATING PAIN ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD?? I REST MY CASE

  8. Can any pain on Earth be equated to that of hellfire as enumerated by the Holiest of all Books, The Bible? As I understood the Word of God, any wrong decision a man took without first considering its enternal implication is foolishness.
    Suicide in one of such decision.
    THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER,

    But my strolling continues…
