Another state considering 'euthanasia'

New Hampshire's legislature is working on a bill legalizing assisted suicide.

The bill under consideration is currently in a study committee, but proponents want it debated and passed this session. New Hampshire Right to Life president Kurt Wuelper says based on their past actions, lawmakers in his state just might be leaning towards passage.
"We have a legislature that repealed our parental notification law for no reason because they didn't want to deal with it anymore," he laments. "And so they just repealed it rather than wait for the courts to say...99 percent of it is good and so you can go forward with that. [And] they imposed homosexual 'marriage' on our state, apparently against a majority of the people's will -- but they did it anyway."
He goes on to say the current proposal is riddled with problems, citing one example.
"When somebody's diagnosed with a terminal illness -- that could be at any age...there's nothing in the bill that says you have to be suffering or you have to be near death or anything like that," says Wuelper. "It's just that if you have a terminal illness, you can qualify for assisted suicide."
Even if doctors estimate the individual has another 20 years to live, he adds.
Opponents of assisted suicide are organizing to try to get their message across to lawmakers and the public.
