Some things need killing and the so-called “right-to-die” bill is one of them, but the damn thing refuses to flatline.
Despite the proper death dealt to it by a Republican-led Senate panel this week, the House Judiciary Committee passed a similar bill Thursday despite it’s bleak prognoses for survival in the upper chamber.
Opponents argue the bill would facilitate doctor-assisted suicide, especially with terminal diagnoses that are wrong.
Supporters say the terminally ill deserve the right to choose when and how to end their suffering. They say states like Oregon have adopted such laws with adequate safeguards against abuse.
Right, because Democratic politicians are so adept at passing laws with safeguards against abuse, laws like Obamacare.
Remember when the public screamed that the next step would be the creation of death panels? Insurance companies and doctors determining who should live or die?
Instead of focusing on rights to die, lawmakers would better serve us by focusing on our rights to live, to have access to healthcare of our choosing that is affordable, was affordable before Obamacare.
We said it before and will say it again, the only action this legislation should see is that of a dignified death. And quickly, because we’re running out of clichés.
