Montana's Judge Dorothy McCarter has imposed assisted suicide upon the state of Montana. I am not a legal expert but Wesley Smith has made some very significant statements about this situation.
I will only say that this represents a judicial tyranny upon the people without any consideration of the vulnerable who will become pressured into death, rather than receiving dignified care and loving support.
The other side will say that this decision ensures that a person's individual choice will be honored. That is such a lie. The social and cultural reality will lead to some people choosing death while others will feel the cultural force pushing them over the edge.
Whether it be a subtle pressure or the reality that some people are too stupid not to "choose" death with death becoming silently imposed upon them.
In the end who will know the difference and who will care. The dead do not have a voice.
