It’s not unexpected, but unfortunate nevertheless.
Just announced, the Supreme Court of Montana has decided that assisted suicide is legal in Montana. That makes Montana the third state in the US to so rule.
ISDB filed an amicus brief opposing assisted suicide in Montana, along with many other groups. I watched the arguments before the Montana Supreme Court in early September, and was not hopeful that our side would succeed.
So there we have it. Creeping culture of death, now legal.
That, plus the pernicious pro-death provisions of the healthcare bill that may well be passed, means we are entering a new era of disposable humanity.
My greatest frustration? That many people with disabilities apparently cannot see how they will soon be in the sights of the pro-death lobby.
In my more perverse moments, I can’t wait to say, “I told you so.”
More rationally, if more people with disabilities don’t stand up along with those of us who are trying to get the word out, then the future is very dark indeed.
Happy New Year.
