New Jersey Legalizes Euthanasia

I think everyone has a right to die, but we walk a very dangerous path when we allow one person to kill another.
Gov. Phil Murphy has signed the Medical Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act. And the law goes into effect August 1.
It will allow adults with a prognosis of six months or less to live to get a prescription for life-ending medication.
This make New Jersey the ninth jurisdiction to allow physician-assisted suicide. The others are: California, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, Hawaii, Montana and the District of Columbia.

    Owen, how do you define “right to die”?  Asking for a friend…

  2. Owen

    I define it as… we have a right to refuse medical treatment and let nature take its course.
