Kill the Old People Act of 2015
SB128 would make assisted suicide legal in California. It would have doctors kill people. The job of doctors is to heal people. It is the job of doctors to fight against death, not to give in to death.
Even the pagan ancient Greeks understood the duty of doctors is to help people. First, do no harm. We have forgotten that in medicine today. We have doctors perform executions, abortions and now assisted suicide.
The insurance company and the government health plans will pay for assisted suicide. They will save money be not having to pay for expensive treatments and palliative care. I suspect they will stop covering many treatments so that assisted suicide becomes an even more attractive option for people. Honor thy father and thy mother. You don't honor them by killing them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
