    The Wide Awakes

    California is looking to replicate Oregon's assisted suicide laws. The culture of death is slowly going to spread across the country; before we know it, assisted suicide will be the norm.


    - Doctors can help terminally ill people die without fear of punishment from the federal government. The Supreme Court's ruling Tuesday on an Oregon law is giving a lot of traction to a similar bill in California. The bill in California provides more safeguards than the Oregon law, but the idea is the same. It would allow doctors to prescribe lethal doses of medication to people with incurable diseases and only months to live.


    Safeguards? That's a crock. Safeguards should include time to reflect and time for all pain management interventions to take place. There isn't really any true safeguards written into the Oregon law. It's really a matter of request a death and you get it.


    Assembly Member Patty Berg of Santa Rosa is behind a bill that's similar to the Oregon law. It failed in the legislature last year, but since then Berg says she's garnered more support from doctors to members of the clergy.

    Assm. Patty Berg, (D) Santa Rosa: "Seventy-percent of Californians want this, and so this just provides us additional momentum. So I'm just thrilled."


    70%??? I don't know if this is true or not. If it is the state is doing something terribly wrong.
    To want to die vs. live, things must be pretty damn bad.


    The vote in the U.S. Supreme Court was 6-3. Yet despite the decision, groups opposing right to die laws say they will continue fighting them.

    Dr. Robert Saxer, Catholic Medical Association: "It is incompatible with the role as a physician, and pain can be controlled, and people don't have to die in pain."


    This doctor is correct. But I suspect this has a lot more to do with other motivations besides pain...

    A recent study from the Netherlands shows us that more than half the people who chose death, or euthanasia, were clinically depressed. This is a treatable condition. People who are depressed should not be allowed to make such decisions.


    LEIDEN, January 16, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A study published by Dutch researchers in the September 20, 2005 edition of the Journal of Clinical Oncology (JCO) has shown that at least 50% of patients killed under the Dutch euthanasia programme were suffering from depression. In addition, 44% of those suffering from cancer showed clinical signs of depression when they asked for euthanasia.


    We don't hear about these things in the MSM...they don't want the general public to know that people with depressions, due to terminal illness are not being treated. It's easier to say they want to die...let's face it...for the most part people who commit suicide are depressed....
