  • Pressure to get an assisted suicide

    Since the issue of assisted suicide has been in the public's eye for the last few days, now is a good time to look back at a 2008 article, where an Oregon cancer patient received a letter from the state saying that they would no longer pay for her cancer drugs, but that they would pay for her to kill herself:

    These pressures, which may come from the government, from one's family, or even from one's inner conscience (if they feel like an economic burden), are one reason why I do not support legalizing assisted suicide.
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill
