From the Article:
"In becoming the ninth jurisdiction to legalize physician-assisted suicide, New Jersey has unleashed a Pandora’s box on its residents—and the poor, weak, and disabled will suffer the most.
The Medical Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act was signed into law by New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat, after it narrowly cleared both chambers of the state Legislature.
As of Aug. 1, 2019, terminally ill patients with a prognosis of six months or fewer will now be able to self-administer lethal concoctions of drugs in order to take their own lives.
Murphy claimed in a statement that this bill would “[provide] terminally ill patients and their families with the humanity, dignity, and respect that they so richly deserve at the most difficult times any of us will face.”
Speaking from personal experience I can testify how misguided this nis. My father-in-law was diagnosed with cancer and given 3 months to live. If he had livend in New Jersey or any of the other Kavorkian states he could have endted his life. It turn out if he had done so he would have missed out of 51/2 years of life, the birth of his 2nd grand daughter and two grnd sones andamong other things. He would not have had 51/2 years of loving companionship of this wife and children. I can go on but you see what I'm aiming at.
No one, not doctors, not ministers not anyone knows how long you have on earth. If you are able to know that you would be on the right hand og God almighty. I haven't noticed anyone applying for the job lately.
Assisted suicide is wrong. it makes the doctor and in some cases the family accessories to murder wither it's against the law or not for assist. Just my opinion on this matter.

    Of course Murphy signed it.

    "Humanity, dignity and respect"? Like killing live babies at 9th month, right?

    NJ is a cesspool whose Dem governor is making sure it stays that way.

    I agree with you. Some doctors thing MD stands for 'Medical Diety'. It does not. God will allow you to die or live whenever it is time for such.

      Doctors should have a required course titled something like "Most People who Think they are God are in a hospital under restraint. Make sure you don't go that route". It should be required and be passed with an A.
