His mother had breast cancer and chose to kill herself. She left a message for her politician son: “Next Wednesday will be the last day for me. Hope you can make it.” Newsom’s sister recalled “how hard it was for him to be with her when she was dying.”
In 2002, assisting suicide was a felony in California. Newsom was never charged with any crime: indeed, hardly anyone seemed even to notice what he’d done. In 2015 the state legalized assisted suicide in the “End of Life Option Act.”
Here in New Jersey, just last year, our own Democrat governor, Phil Murphy–famous for saying that considering the Bill of Rights was “above my pay grade”–pushed for assisted suicide to be legalized by the legislature, but a court shot it down.
Democrats: assisted suicide, abortion–what is it with Democrats and death? Is there anything morally evil that they’re not for? Is there any pathway to the graveyard that they don’t line with cheering and confetti?
These are the kinds of things that we as a nation have to stop doing.
When Canada in 2016 made it okay for doctors to help their patients kill themselves, no one expected a new industry to grow up around it. Even though that’s what always happens, every time some liberal politicians or judges discover a new “right” that wasn’t on the books before.
Check out this headline from The Ottawa Citizen: “Medically assisted deaths prove a growing boon to organ donation in Ontario.” Hip, hip, hooray. And, in the text, “Ontarians who opt for medically assisted deaths (MAiD)–” dig the cute acronym–“are increasingly saving or improving other people’s lives…”
You name it, people make money on it. Assisted suicide is turning into big business. All these people rubbing their palms as they wait for you to snuff it. And if you’re a little slow to tell ’em to pull your plug, there’s always someone leaning over your hospital bed to remind you of all the good you’ll be doing, so why don’t you get a move on, etc.
So first it’s in your interest to die, to escape unrelievable suffering. Then it’s in the interest of those who will get well if they can gave one or more of your organs. It’s also in the interest of those who will make money on the deal, but it’s tactless to mention it. And finally, offing yourself probably helps Save The Planet.
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.
Wherever you find Democrats in charge, you’ll find laws favoring abortion, sexual anarchy, suicide, and drug use.
Our governor cites his “strict Catholic upbringing.” Well, obviously he’s totally rejected everything they tried to teach him. Boy, if you could ever find a way to harness liberal hypocrisy, we could get rid of fossil fuels the same day.
They pitch assisted suicide to us as humane, an escape from agony, it’s only gonna be after a doctor says you’ve got just six months or less to live–and we all know doctors are always right about that, don’t we?
They don’t say anything about “end of life counselors” or family members who hate you gathered around your sick-bed like vultures and nagging you to end it all. “C,mon! Don’t you realize how much money it costs to keep you alive? C’mon, now, kill yourself! Do it now!”
No fear of God. Like they’ll never have to stand before His judgment seat.
