AB 374, the physician-assisted suicide bill is scheduled for a March 27 hearing in California's State Assembly. Introduced by Assemblymembers Patty Berg and Lloyd Levine in February, it is a bill intent on legalizing assisted suicide in California. Wesley J. Smith, author of "Forced Exit" and a Sr. Fellow at the Discovery Institute gave some very important arguments against the major public policies that are being made regarding assisted suicide, and the rapid movement towards "disposable people” on the show today.
“...the fact that a being is a human being...is not relevant to the wrongness of killing it; it is, rather, characteristics like rationality, autonomy, and self-consciousness that make a difference. Infants lack these characteristics. Killing them, therefore, cannot be equated with killing normal human beings..." -Peter Singer, Professor Princeton Univ.
