So far, five states have legalized physician assisted suicide. Ten more states are considering such legislation this year and twenty-two are considering it for the future. Oregon was one of the first to cross the threshold into euthanasia, and opponents warned it would open a Pandora ’s Box of unexpected evils. Those evils are now making themselves known. The Oregon Office of Adult Abuse Prevention and Investigations announced there had been a ten-percent increase in abuse of the elderly last year. As baby boomers age, there are fewer workers to pay for their Social Security and healthcare. As a result, the elderly are becoming an unwanted burden and it’s beginning to show. It’s more likely they’ll be victimized by coerced or forced euthanasia. Please pray for them.
