A judge has issued a restraining order against New Jersey’s shiny new assisted suicide “law,” which went into effect this month (https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/new-jersey-judge-temporarily-blocks-assisted-suicide-law-99687).
A doctor sued on the grounds that the “law” violated his religious freedom and First Amendment rights. Ya think? It only says that a doctor who won’t help a patient kill himself must refer the patient to a doctor who will. So they’re telling you what you must say, even when you believe it’s wrong. Is there a First Amendment in the house?
Democrat Gov. Phil Murphy, who enthusiastically signed the bill into “law,” said it was a hard decision for him because he’s “a lifelong, practicing Catholic.” Hey, you need to practice harder, sunshine. He and his attorney general have pledged to fight the restraining order.
After all, assisted suicide, euthanasia, abortion–these are all favorites of the Far Left death cult, most of whose members are Democrats.
After a great deal of low political chicanery in the State House, Murphy and his pals got what they wanted, and New Jersey became the seventh of eight states now permitting doctor-assisted suicide.
Until a judge let the air out of their balloon.
Hopefully the cheap tricks will be undone and the “law” overturned. Meanwhile, thank you, Judge Innes.
