… And we’re picking up speed on the road to hell as another ‘guarantee’ that was promised us by politicians to protect us from euthanasia falls to the wayside. When every advocacy group that speaks for the disabled and mentally ill states that this change is a threat to their clients and the government does it anyway, you know there’s going to be trouble. The fact of the matter is that once we broke down the barrier that prevented the state from taking an innocent person’s life the only protection we had was a politician’s promise. And that’s about as substantial a foundation for protection as a snowbank in the Spring. Rest assured, we will all come to rue this decision at some point in the not too distant future.
