The Democrat-controlled state legislature of Illinois isn’t considering a bill to legalize assisted suicide, but that may not stop the Chicago suburb of Evanston from discussing an initiative to pressure legislators to pass such a bill. The Evanston City Council, with the help of assisted suicide advocates, have crafted a proposed “death with dignity” resolution asking state legislators to legalize euthanasia. The council plans to have a vote Monday, February 10, on whether or not to move forward with the resolution.
Illinois Democrats of Evanston want to follow in the footsteps of Democrats in nine other states that have legalized assisted suicide–California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Montana, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington. The measure in Evanston would allow “a terminally ill, mentally capable adult with six months or less to live [to] request a prescription for medication from his or her physician that the patient may choose to self-ingest for a peaceful death.” The resolution claims that this “honors their patients’ values and priorities and puts the patient at the center of her or his own healthcare…”
It’s not surprising that socialist-minded liberal Democrats would want to expand their culture of death beyond murdering innocent, unborn humans since it’s part of their philosophy to pretend that they care about people’s “dignity” while they actively work to diminish human dignity. As has been proven in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Canada, euthanasia always begins with the claim of wanting to help the “terminally ill” avoid unnecessary suffering just to get their foot in the door for acceptance.
After the foolish fall for the false claims of being merciful, euthanasia advocates (who are predominantly atheist) then proceed to push for expanding assisted suicide for the mentally or physically disabled, the mentally ill, sick minors, and, eventually, anyone who just feels like ending it all even if they aren’t sick. They don’t care that advances have been made in counseling and medical professions to alleviate pain and suffering to help people live until they die naturally. All the euthanasia advocates want is for people to die as quickly as possible to not only cut potential medical costs (i.e., money over mankind), but to also fulfill the globalist aspiration of drastically reducing the size of the human population.
Given that the Democrats running Illinois have passed measures to harm law-abiding citizens, such as legalizing marijuana, making the state a sanctuary state for illegals, and expanding abortion “rights,” the measure (unfortunately) stands a good chance of advancing.
Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law? Psalm 94:20
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20
Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; Isaiah 10:1
