A great article here.
Personally, I’m not surprised by the verdict, but I am disturbed by just how illogical the Supreme Court’s arguments have become. They justify assisted suicide because it supposedly infringes on the right to “life, liberty and security of the person”. So allowing assisted suicide advances the right to life? Really? And the right to security of the person? Are you serious?
The Court also said that the current law infringes on people’s right to make decisions about their “bodily integrity.” Of course, because nothing screams “bodily integrity” like injecting a fatal dose of medication to stop your heart.
The Court also contradicts itself on multiple levels compared to its 1994 verdict in which it upheld the current law.
This is what passes for the “supreme” authority in our land, having the power to usurp Parliament’s right to make laws. Democracy has failed.
Such is the crazy world in which we live. Clearly, God is allowing us to slide deeper towards hell for the time being. Honestly, I’m not sure we deserve any better.
