California’s Governor Jerry Brown — known to conservatives as Gov. Moonbeam — signed into law yesterday a bill (SB 282) that allows any person to “aid, advise, and encourage” suicide under the state’s assisted suicide law. Until now, these actions were felonies, as the state had a longstanding policy to protect people from self-harm.
In the aftermath of non-profit organization Life Legal’s challenge to California’s End of Life Option Act, the state legislators — a Democratic Party majority — decided to go even further.
Those who oppose such laws have said that physician-assisted suicide is only the beginning. and now California is following other self-inflicted death jurisdictions like Canada, Belgium, and the Netherlands. The Dutch government went as far as garnering support for assisted-suicide first and then pursued eventually legalizing voluntary and involuntary euthanasia.
“Involuntary euthanasia is the ultimate goal of the so-called globalist leaders of the New World Order. In the U.S., California would love to euthanize the current American citizens and replace them with tens or millions of immigrants who they hope are ill-educated and unsophisticated,” said from military intelligence operative and police sergeant Joey Heddran.
“The goal is simply to replace the nation’s demographics,” he added.
According to Life Legal News, “Medical studies show that the vast majority of people—up to 77%—diagnosed with a terminal illness suffer from major depression. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology found a statistically significant association between clinical depression and the desire for hastened death. In other words, people who are depressed often have suicidal thoughts.”
“Now the law in California says that it is okay to aid, advise, or encourage people with suicidal thoughts to actually go through with killing themselves,” according to officials with Life Legal, a nonpartisan, non-profit oversight group. “We refuse to stand idly by as California and the rest of the nation proceed down this deadly path.”
“This bill would allow a doctor or nurse to “aid,” “advise,” and “encourage” you to take suicide pills. And this new law lets a relative who could financially benefit from your death to sign an order giving you suicide pills,” said Charles Finneman, a criminal psychologist with the American Federation of Police and Concerned Citizens..
For over two years, Life Legal has been battling California’s assisted suicide law in the courts. The group’s opponents are California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who they claim is in pocket of groups such as Planned Parenthood and who charged David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt with 15 felony counts each for exposing the abortion giant’s role in the criminal sale of butchered baby parts for profit; and the grossly misnamed “Compassion and Choices,” which is the Planned Parenthood of the forced death movement, heavily funded by the likes of multi-billionaire radical George Soros.
Life Legal and other conservative and religious groups registered their opposition to SB 282 from the beginning, since it grants complete legal immunity to anyone who wants to facilitate the death of someone who is defined as “terminally ill” under California’s assisted suicide law. The law defines “terminal” as a condition expected to lead to death within six months if left untreated.
This means diabetes, high blood pressure, treatable conditions-even an infection-could be considered “terminal.”
One homicide detective predicts it will lead to dishonesty and out-and-out murder for financial gain. “The medical profession is respected in our country but I’ve seen physicians who were arrested for a number of crimes stemming from their greed,” said New York retired homicide detective Jerome Delgado
California’s assisted suicide law allows “interested” witnesses, which include beneficiaries, to sign a person’s request for assisted suicide drugs. The new law allows an individual to aid, advise, and encourage a person to commit suicide — sign off on the method of suicide –while financially benefiting from the person’s death.
SB 282 will give unscrupulous family members and others unqualified immunity to actively participate in the killing of another human being. “I am always amazed at the cunning displayed by the Democratic Party to make even the most heinous acts sound charitable,” said William Talbott, a former forensic science professor. “In California, as it stands now, they can kill babies just seconds before they come out of a mother’s womb and they can kill the elderly or chronically ill with the blessings of those whose lives are being terminated.”
According to Life Legal Defense Foundation, “We cannot imagine an issue more worthy of attention than the protection of vulnerable life. It is unfathomable to us how so many have remained silent in the face of this radical and dangerous policy shift.
“Imagine if the state had passed a law saying it was okay to “aid, advise, and encourage” human trafficking. We would be outraged-and rightly so.”
“We don’t say it’s okay to allow women to pay doctors to rip their unborn children limb from limb because it’s their ‘choice.’ We don’t say it’s okay to allow children to sell themselves into sex slavery because it’s their ‘choice.’ And we should not say it’s okay to allow people to help the vulnerable, the disabled, and the mentally ill kill themselves.”
