    The Vermont Legislative Bill Tracking System



    The bill goes on to cite Oregon's "success" in this matter.


    This bill is slated to go up for a vote tomorrow, March 14.



    (politics? religion?)

    Thoughts and opinions????

    I think it makes sense. Let's allow people to die with dignity.

    Wow. Where to start........

    In general Conservatives have a BIG problem with euthanasia. It's just another way they can try and impose their moral beliefs on everyone else.

    We can start with the Bush Administration. They tried to intervene with the Terri Schiavo case which was akin to euthanasia.

    The Bush Administration also tried to overide the will of the voters by filing a lawsuit against Oregon's voter approved euthanasia law.

    BUSH ADMINISTRATION CLAMPS DOWN ON OREGON EUTHANASIA | LifeSiteNews.com

    And who can forget Rush Limbaugh (the national spokesman for conservatism) referring to Jack Kevorkian as "Jack the Dripper"?

    Below are the two views clearly defined..........

    Conservative vs. Liberal Beliefs

    And to think Kevorkian was put away for just that.
    Of course Vermont is Messed up in a big way. It used to be a pretty cool state. So was Maine.
    Not anymore in my opinion.

    I disagree. It is not a Black/White or Left/Right issue.

    By the way, Conservatives opposed Terri Schiavo's case because of the unique set of circumstances. The estranged husband wanted her dead, the parents wanted her alive. Also, she was in a coma- not dying from a terminal illness.
