Assisted Suicide bill defeated in Australia

Wesley Smith has written an excellent article about the defeat of the Assisted Suicide bill in Australia.

Smith explains how the use of language mean't that the breadth of the Australian bill was very wide.

Remember, assisted suicide is not about providing a "dignified death" for people who are terminally ill and suffering. It is about someone, usually a physician, having the right to directly and intentionally cause the death of another person.

People in Washington State need to take heed and defeat the I-1000 assisted suicide initiative in November. Australia is a very liberal nation and yet the majority of their legislatures have recognized that legalizing assisted suicide will threaten the lives of the most vulnerable in society.
