Are we sufficiently jarred? Why would anybody devise a method to help people end their lives? And what in the world drives people to want to do that?

Don’t kill. And don’t make me help you die.

And don’t make me lie about knowing you’re killing yourself, either.

As usual, it’s being done under the disguise of compassion. This storyline is getting mainstreamed, and even if well-intended, it’s dangerous.
