The California Republican

This blog was created in order to report on a streak of conservatism currently taking hold in California. Recent events, and voting records show much of the same here in California, but the trend is one that is certainly in our favor.

Brilliant Article on Euthanasia

The Right to Die?

Mel from the Stumping Grounds.

This leads us to a moral quandary beyond the legal repercussions, had Brian's wife been able to take her own life, that would have been the end of the matter, but it seems that she was unable to do so, and therefore required the assistance of her husband to slash her wrists. The law in most Western jurisdiction does not make suicide an illegal act, yet it does not allow an individual who is unable to take their own life seek help in order to end it. Is this correct, and can this distinction be justified?
