Those against it, believe life is given by God, and he decides when to end it.

Hooper and his black veil because he hated anything that separated one from the rest of humanity. Hooper’s veil does exactly this. His face is shielded from the rest of the world: “It threw its obscurity between him and the Holy page” (Montbriand). None of the members of his congregation, or his fiancé can understand, and this causes Hooper to live a sad life alone. Hawthorne also places Mr. Hooper in the small town of Salem, the town where he was born.
"I rather tell thee what is to be feared then what I fear, for always I am Caesar" (1.2.-), he cared about everyone else before himself, how noble. Clearly, his death was an awful crime committed by jealous men. It was unfair, and not right by any

He hides his wrongdoing and beings to see evil and deviltry in all humans; he becomes an actor, losing his genuine, honest self and becoming untrusting towards all. The results of his sin are paralleled in Hawthorne’s novel The Scarlet Letter; the Puritan minister Reverend Mr. Dimmesdale commits the sin of adultery, yet continues to live his life in a position of revered holiness. Dimmesdale loses himself in this falsehood, forgetting who he truly is, and assumes two distinct identities: one while in the public eye and another while in privacy.

The concept is for the church to stay out of the state’s business and opponents are clearly crossing the line. They would not appreciate if the government came in to their church and tell him how to operate so they should mind their own business and stay out of the government’s business.

It is the right of a terminally ill person to end excruciating pain.
