Vermont Legalizes Assisted Suicide



Text  



Alas. Today, the Vermont Legislature passed a bill that legalizes assisted suicide in the state. The governor has promised to sign it into law and it will take effect immediately. In three years, the protective guidelines will sunset and VT will have essentially no rules assisted suicide. 

This is very bad news disguised as compassion. Nor, in the long run, will the death agenda be limited to the terminally ill. Eventually, Vermont will end up off the same vertical moral cliff as Belgium, the Netherlands, and Switzerland.
