The Montana Legislature is considering SB 202, which if passed, would legalize assisted suicide and euthanasia in Montana.
Under the bill, young adults with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, would be "eligible" for assisted suicide/euthanasia. Such persons can live long healthy lives, for years, even decades.
The bill, if passed, it will create the following problems:
- It will encourage people with years to live to throw away their lives.
- It will create new paths of elder abuse, especially in the inheritance context.
- It will empower health care systems to steer patients to suicide, which is well documented in Oregon where assisted suicide is legal.
