Yesterday, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a bill allowing mentally competent, terminally ill patients to end life on their own terms, using drugs prescribed by their doctors.
We should all be glad he signed it.
There are religious conservatives who think taking your own life is an affront to God and that you have to let nature run its course — even when you’re deathly sick, in constant pain, and have no hope for recovery. They think the God who inflicted that pain upon you should be allowed to torture you as long as He wants.
Could they be any more cruel?
