Good Morning June 8

The California Medial Association recently changed their position on physician assisted suicide. They moved from being opposed to being neutral on the matter, saying that public opinion in this country has become more accepting of the idea. Thus, they allow doctors to use their own judgment about using life ending drugs. Taking public opinion polls has become a large industry for everything from product marketing to political campaigns. But public opinion changes like the wind. People get used to this and accepting of that. So it must be fine. But just like the California Medical Association people and organization become totally devoid of moral judgment in favor of public opinion. Physician assisted suicide is murder no matter how it is cloaked in benevolent motivations or positive opinions. Our Lord has given us values by which we are to live for our good and to His honor. Once we move away from those values everything becomes permissible, and we destroy life as God intended it.
