What’s next?

Balonne Beacon - - NEWS -

THINGS are mov­ing fast. First, we have the same-sex mar­riage de­bate and now there’s two eu­thana­sia bills be­fore the Se­nate. From ‘mar­riage equal­ity” to ‘dy­ing with dig­nity’ – how they like to dress things up to sound nice and ac­cept­able.

Eu­thana­sia will be as­sisted sui­cide; we need to call it what it is. Is it right for doc­tors to be turned into killers? Is sui­cide morally right or ever jus­ti­fied?

Eu­thana­sia will fall upon the aged and vul­ner­a­ble mem­bers of our so­ci­ety.

They say there will be safe­guards but in over­seas ju­ris­dic­tions we have seen it was ex­tended to peo­ple who were never in their sights at the first men­tion of the leg­is­la­tion.

Funny that we should be talk­ing about leg­is­lat­ing for the killing of the vul­ner­a­ble, but never do we dis­cuss ex­e­cut­ing mur­der­ers.

Isn’t it time that we take a step back, and con­sider, where we as a na­tion are head­ing? — Jay Nauss
