Laws don't apply to individuals - they apply to all of us. You can't change the law to allow doctors to perform assisted suicide and euthanasia for just the tough cases; a law that makes it ok for people to choose when to die will affect everyone.

Over time, such a law change would influence the way we think about dying, illness, suicide, disability, and suffering, as it has in places like the Netherlands and Oregon. The law will change for all of us, and the law will change our culture.

This SHORT CUT comes from Sam Bloore's talk at "Why Not? | making sense of the case against assisted suicide," an event produced by the Care Alliance, in association with Maxim Institute.
