Death with dignity?

"The Death with Dignity National Center was formed out of a profound commitment to the idea that personal end-of-life decisions should be made solely between a patient and a physician.", to most of America, this sounds like a "good" thing. I mean, you know, it's my life and I should be able to "choose" what to do with it?
Sound familiar?

What about  Barbara Wagner?....The 64-year-old Oregon woman, whose lung cancer had been in remission, learned the disease had returned and would likely kill her. Her last hope was a $4,000-a-month drug that her doctor prescribed for her, but the insurance company refused to pay.

What the Oregon Health Plan did agree to cover, however, were drugs for a physician-assisted death. Those drugs would cost about $50.00 !!!!!

It seems that "personal end-of-life decisions should be made solely between a patient and a physician."

It seems now that the decision is up to the physician and the insurance company. The patient is left with only one option....maybe two if they hit the lottery.

So, once again our country, our society has put a price on the life of a human being.
First the unborn baby in the womb. It is cheaper to "terminate" (kill) a baby than it would be to raise the child.
Now, it is cheaper to kill a person who has a life threatening disease than it is to let them live a while longer.

Now the President and a majority of our government wishes to "kill our consciences" with their newest attack on Christianity.

Once again, the human being moves down a spot and the Declaration that this country was founded on;
 We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
.....has been trampled....

WE THE PEOPLE are not being given the right to life from conception to natural death, but most Americans don't seem to least in their actions. They say they wouldn't get an abortion or they wouldn't commit suicide, yet their actions politically say something different.
If you vote for a candidate that is openly pro-abortion/pro-euthanasia, you are going against Church teachings and are committing a grave sin. There is no gray area in this realm of life.

Can you say..."death panels"? That's basically what this is. I'm disgusted. There is so much about this president that I just can't stand!
