OR: Patients with Treatable Diabetes Can Be Euthanized

Government Bureaucrat: Patients With Treatable Diabetes Should be Given Assisted Suicide Option

Salem, Oregon

Brief excerpts follow. Please click link above to read the entire article.

The media have always gone along with the nonsense that assisted suicide and euthanasia laws are governed by strict guidelines to prevent abuse. ... Oregon death bureaucrats destroy all records used to compile their annual reports–meaning that there can be no effective independent inquiry or investigations. ...

The [Oregon] law is best seen as a permissive law, and states only that patients must have a terminal illness with six months or less to live. It does not compel patients to have exhausted all treatment options first, or to continue current treatment.

Here’s the thing: Assisted suicide was sold to Oregon voters as exactly the opposite–as a very restricted law that would merely serve as a safety valve when nothing else could be done to alleviate suffering. ...

States with permissive euthanasia laws include Washington, Oregon, and most recently California.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.
