Death with Dignity Act

What medicine has become: doctors destroying human life

As the Death with Dignity Act is about to be enforced, I can only worry about its consequences.

Right now health-care systems can opt out if they don’t believe this is appropriate care for their patients. But, if the Freedom of Choice Act gets passed, which deals with abortion and the freedom of choice, health-care systems won’t be able to opt out of performing abortions and in-time euthanasia.

If you plan a career in medicine, in your life time you will probably be required to participate in the destruction of human life.

Oh, what modern medicine has become.

— Tim Carney, Seattle
