Governor Chris Christie
It seems likely that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may need to veto the State assisted suicide bill. 


The media has reported that Stephen Sweeney (D), the President of the New Jersey State Senate, has agreed to be the primary sponsor for New Jersey Senate Assisted Suicide Bill 382, after Joseph Vitale (D) withdrew his sponsorship of the assisted suicide bill.

Vitale, the Chairman of the State Senate Health Committee, told the New Jersey media:
“I initially supported the idea of the bill and signed on. After a time, I had more questions and concerns than answers. So I thought it was honest to remove my name and continue to think about it.”
On November 13, the New Jersey State Assembly passed the assisted suicide bill A 2270 by a vote of 41 to 31 after pushing for a quick vote on the bill while the Brittany Maynard story was fresh in the minds of the state legislators.

New Jersey citizens are urged to contact their State Senators to defeat the assisted suicide bill.

Everyone can sign the petition urging New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to veto the assisted suicide bill.

These nine Supreme Court judges who have decided that euthanasia should be allowed in Canada are NOT representative of the people of Canada. They were appointed, not voted into office BY the people of Canada! This new 'law' that these nine men decided upon should be rescinded! SOMETHING needs to put this to a vote BY THE PEOPLE OF CANADA!
