California Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill legalizing assisted suicide in the nation’s most populous state. This makes California the fifth state to legalize assisted suicide.
The major moral shift on the sanctity of human life is now focused in this bill at the end of life. But once one begins to diminish the sanctity of life at one end of the spectrum, inevitably, it will shift to the other end as well.
The increased cultural acceptance of euthanasia is only possible because there has only been a major moral revolution on the issue of abortion with millions of Americans re-classifying abortion no longer as the murder of unborn human being, but rather as a matter of choice for women and a matter of their own personal liberty.
But that will lead us to a second conclusion: These issues diminishing the dignity and sanctity of human life, this revolution, won’t stop with the two ends of the spectrum. It will inevitably re-define human life at every point along that spectrum, which is to say, at every age regardless of condition.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/227513322″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
