Court Ruling on Euthanasia

The courts overturned the law making physician assisted suicide illegal. Then Stephen Harper and his band of fundamentalist meddlesome loonies are tried to get their religious superstitions about death and god burned back into law. They wanted to micromanage the end-of-life decisions of the terminally ill. They wanted to force their religious beliefs down the throats of the terminally ill. They didn’t care how much suffering the terminally ill had to endure because they believed one should not escape suffering imposed by the sadistic god Yahweh. Other people’s end-of-life decisions are none of their business. Those decisions do not concern them in the least. Ask the terminally ill what safeguards they want. You will find don’t want Christians making those decisions for them. Only they are qualified to decide if and when life is too unbearable to require help dying. Christians keep trying to force their completely unscientific ideas about euthanasia, contraception and abortion on everyone else. The constitution guarantees freedom of religion which includes freedom from religion. What Harper and friends were doing is as wrong as making it illegal to refuse communion.
