Where are we heading as a nation?

YOUR SAY: Things are moving fast.

First, we have the Same Sex Marriage debate and now there's two euthanasia bills before the Senate.

From 'marriage equality" to 'dying with dignity'.

How they like to dress things up to sound nice and acceptable.

Euthanasia will be assisted suicide; we need to call it what it is.

Is it right for doctors to be turned into killers?

Is suicide morally right or ever justified?

Euthanasia will fall upon the aged and vulnerable members of our society.

They say there will be safe guards but in overseas jurisdictions we have seen it was extended to people who were never in their sights at first mention of the legislation.

Funny that we should be talking about legislating for the killing of the vulnerable, but never do we discuss executing murderers.

Isn't it time that we take a step back, and consider, where we as a nation are heading?
