What Would Jesus Say:Right to Die Legalized in California?
Reader California is to be the fifth American state to allow terminally ill patients to end their lives, legally. California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Monday to allow dying patients to receive lethal medication and end their own lives. After weeks of speculation, Brown - a Catholic - said he chose to sign the contentious bill after consulting with his own doctors and a Catholic bishop.
The Bible tells us that it is God who appoints people to die. Essentially, assisted suicide is an attempt to deny God His sovereign right to appoint who dies when. We must be careful not to take into our own hands the right that belongs to God.
Reader, do you agree with assisted suicide?
