Colorado to decide on euthanasia this November

euthanasiaPro-life groups in Colorado are rushing to educate voters on the issue of euthanasia because they will soon be heading to the ballot box to decide whether to legalize the controversial practice often euphemized as “mercy killing.”

In most states – when the electorate is fully informed on the issue – they vote down doctor-assisted suicide, but Christians already have their source of accurate information.

Colorado Right to Life Spokesman Bob Enyart appeals to Scripture to shine light on the matter and quotes Exodus 23:7, which states, “Do not kill the innocents.” He went on to mention that God also warned through the prophet Ezekiel, “Do not profane Me by killing people who should not die and keeping people alive who should not live.”

Enyart says that many progressives pay little heed to these biblical warnings.

“So it's not surprising that virtually all the secular groups that oppose the death penalty – which would execute the guilty – those same groups also advocate killing the innocent … whether the unborn child or the infirm,” the pro-life advocate asserts. “Liberals generally, in fact, support protecting the guilty and killing the innocent.”

He contends when the stigma of suicide is removed – such as flying into the World Trade Center – then more people include suicide as one of their options.

“[Many now see suicide as a moral choice] and that includes teenagers, weak minded people, murder-suicide criminals and even Kamikazes – and today, Islamic suicide bombers,” Enyart continued. “Suicide is inherently destabilizing and it's promoted by those who don't know right from wrong.”

The conservative spokesman argued against Colorado's proposed euthanasia law in a panel discussion at Denver University that included former Governor Dick Lamm. The much-debated issue will be resolved by voters on the November ballot.
