Euthanasia in the Heartland

Sunset in the heartland

It doesn’t seem that long ago that assisted suicide and euthanasia seemed like things that were handled by rogues like Dr. Kevorkian or small secular progressive European countries like the Netherlands.

Just a couple of decades since it wasn’t legal almost anywhere, Canada has presented a plan to allow assisted suicide even for those with mental illness. Belgium allows it for children, and various states in the United States allow it, as well.

And now in Minnesota, if a bill should pass. After the overturning of Roe, Minnesota was quick to make its state the most abortion-friendly state in the country. Now, legislation has been introduced to allow assisted suicide. Read this heartfelt testimony to remind us of the value of life even in its twilight years.

Wherever assisted suicide is legalized, it starts more narrowly and then grows to encompass more and more legal options to kill oneself by doctor assistance. In addition, the number of people who take advantage (or are pressured to) increases year over year.
