Death With Dignity?

Catholic Exchange
Catholic Answers 

With the passing of ABx2-15, “the physician-assisted suicide bill,” signed into law by California Governor Jerry Brown on Oct. 5, 1015, California became the fifth state in the U.S. to legalize physician-assisted suicide, along with Oregon, Vermont, Washington State, and Montana.

Let’s see: “no fault” divorce, abortion, homosexual “marriage,” trafficking in human baby “parts,” experimenting on human embryos, legalized drugs, prostitution, etc. Just another day in the “land of the free, and the home of the brave,” right?

Oh, but I forgot to mention the good news. Planned Parenthood now says (emphasis onsays) they are not going to charge money for the babies they murder, slice up, and send out for parts.

And this is supposed to be the answer that solves things?

Legalized immorality seems to be coming at us in tidal waves these days. I have reached the point where every day I look at the Drudge Report or turn on the news I dread seeing who is going to be targeted for death next. Or, what kind of immorality is going to be defended as a “human right.” The words of Pope Francis are becoming more and more prophetic:

I see the church as a field hospital after battle. It is useless to ask a seriously injured person if he has high cholesterol and about the level of his blood sugars! You have to heal his wounds. Then we can talk about everything else. Heal the wounds, heal the wounds… And you have to start from the ground up.
