I had a rather interesting conversation with the doctor at the walk in clinic last week. She asked me about Russett, my cat, as the last time I had seen her was due to an infected hand due to a cat bite. I informed her that we had to put him down a week earlier due to organ failure.
The doctor’s expression and voice became very animated and she said: “Oh, you know we can do that for people now”!
I informed her that I understood a bill had either been passed or was in the process, but that I was totally opposed to it.
Her tone started to change and she said,” Well, I would not be able to do it as I would have to take a course. I just thought you might be interested.”
She then asked me why I opposed the policy.
I told her for several reasons:
It goes against God’s law that says thou shalt not kill.
It goes against the Hippocratic Oath that all doctors take. This states, very clearly, that thou shalt not do any harm to thy patient.
It places an unfair responsibility on the shoulders of family, advocates and the doctor.
It is a self serving law to alleviate the financial burden on the Health Care and old age Pension system.
It potentially lines the pockets of the politicians and government with your hard earned money.
It can create opportunities for dissension in the family.
It creates a slippery slope when determining whom we can legally put to death. It may start off with terminally ill and very old people, but then could be later applied to almost anyone, mentally handicapped, psychiatric patients and so on. Where does it end?
In addition there are recorded interviews with ministers which live in various states within the U.S where the death penalty is still legal. The ministers and priests interviewed stated that lethal injection is not as “humane,” as one might think. Frequently, the person dies in extreme pain. This is partly due to lack of knowledge regarding what chemicals to use and opposition from may pharmaceutical companies that refuse to sell certain drugs.
I know this to be true, for sadly, my cat Russett’s death did not come as quickly or humanely as I would have liked. Sometimes things go wrong.
Is it not ironic that the socialist objects to putting rapists and murders to death, but has no difficulty putting a law abiding old women or men to death?
Then I asked her, what happens if you do not have a family member or one you can trust to advocate for you? What happens if you can no longer speak or let your wishes known?
The doctor’s answer, “Oh, you can get a government appointed advocate.”
To which I replied, “Oh, how convenient”. How do they know what you want?I for one would never trust a “government advocate”. It would be too convenient for them and not convenient for me.
This shut her up very quickly.
My point is that in both circumstances the government and liberal media have been given way too much power already. They are dividing and destroying this country with the encouragement of victimizing all these special interest groups and giving them special rights.
The government and Liberal media decide that all are equal under the law but some are more equal than others. When this starts to happen, we lose democracy.
The fringe groups get all the rights and the rest get told how to speak; think and what to write and what ideologies are correct.
If we disagree we are branded bigots; or intolerant or ill educated.
How convenient for the socialists!
Nazi Germany was guilty of this very form of ideology. Our fathers fought a World War to prevent this very sick ideology.
The socialist government has turned away from God and by doing so has lost their way. They can no longer distinguish right from wrong.
The Bible talks about the notion that people (and worst of all, leaders) who persist in wrong-doing – despite compelling natural evidence to the contrary – eventually develop a reprobate mind, where they can no longer judge between right and wrong.
I think we are really seeing what Paul described in the Book of Romans:
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
Sadly if our society continues on this road of destruction than our great nations of Canada and the United States shall collapse. We shall become third world countries. We shall be come countries that practice unlawful and immoral deeds and we shall have brought about our own punishment and collapse.
