Stop the Legalization of Euthanasia in NY
The newly elected radical legislature in NY is on a mission, and it is not a mission of mercy, but a suicide mission for the entire state of NY.
Now that Governor Cuomo and his leftist minions in the legislature have completely stripped the right to life from the pre-born and even from newly born babies, the Governor of NY has announced that he will support the NY "Aid in Dying Act" which is nothing other than the legalization of euthanasia.
The bill, which is modeled on Oregon and Washington's laws, would declare that even people who have as much as ten years to live can be "eligible" for "aid in dying."
And NO this is not fake news.
Although the act limits the eligibility for euthanasia to people who have six months to live, that determination is made considering the time a person would live without treatment. Under this definition, even someone with diabetes would be eligible for euthanasia.
Take the case of Jeanette Hall (pictured above)--a woman who voted for Assisted Suicide to become legal in Oregon and later discovered that she had cancer. Because of her fear of chemotherapy, Jeanette requested to be euthanized. However, providentially, she was put into the loving hands of Dr. Kenneth Stevens, a cancer specialist who opposes euthanasia as a corruption of the practice of medicine. Jeanette, who was divorced, and had lost her mother to dementia and her brother to suicide, initially wouldn’t listen to Stevens’ concerns about euthanasia. But Dr. Stevens was able to walk Jeanette back from the cliff by appealing to her motherly instinct and her desire to see her son graduate from the police academy and start a family. Jeanette went through chemotherapy and is still alive today.Now, she is an outspoken opponent of euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide.
Another MASSIVE problem with the Act is that it presents a treasure trove of opportunities for abuse. You all remember Terry Schiavo, right? Basically, her husband decided she should die so that he could move on with his life. Well, if Governor Cuomo and the radical left have their way, what is going to prevent those with a financial interest from convincing and assisting others to commit suicide so that they can profit? And what if the patient objected or struggled, who would ever know?
We need to let the legislature know that killing the infirm is not merciful, that lethal doses of drugs are not medicine, and that assisted suicide and euthanasia are rife with opportunities for horrific abuse.
Please sign our petition to the legislature of NY to stop assisted suicide, stop euthanasia, and stop Governor Cuomo's crusade for death.
