In reference to the assisted suicide initiative that goes into effect in March:
Do we really believe that desensitization to assisted death will not occur? Do we really believe that the law will always stay as rigid as it is now?
When abortion was legalized we thought that the baby was just a blob of tissue. Now we know that a baby in utero has a heartbeat at 22 days. However, we are so apathetic toward unborn life and obsessed with our own rights that it doesn’t matter if there is a heartbeat … for some reason it still doesn’t count. We know more now than we did in 1973 about life in the womb and that hasn’t changed anything.
How long before we are desensitized to the sanctity of human life in general? How long before this “right” is passed on to people in severe pain who are not terminally ill? How long before it is passed on to anyone who wants to take their lives into their own hands? Shouldn’t anyone be given the right to do whatever they want with their lives? Why limit this “right’ to just the ill? What do we really think this issue will look like 35 years from now?
