NJ pro-lifers watch pro-suicide push win the day

euthanasia 2Be organized and be relentless: That's what New Jersey pro-lifers recommends for people in other states who are debating assisted suicide bills.

Gov. Phil Murphy signed legislation last week that allows terminally ill patients to seek life-ending medication.

With that bill signing, New Jersey joins six other states and the District of Columbia in a growing movement to push euthanasia in this country.

"Be ready for this type of assault," warns Marie Tasy, executive director of New Jersey Right to Life. "People who are pushing this in the states are not people by and large that are citizens of the state, but an outside, well-funded group called Compassion and Choices who are funded by some millionaire donors.”

New Jersey Right to Life has been fighting the assisted suicide bill for years but recent elections brought new legislators and a new governor to the capital thanks largely to the outside push from Compassion and Choices.

"This is why this bill became law," says Tasy. "Unfortunately the governor of New Jersey listened to an outside special interest group, who spent millions of dollars to fund a campaign that was built on lies and empty promises instead of heeding the wishes of New Jersey citizens, who overwhelmingly flooded his office in recent days with phone calls urging him to veto the bill."

Tasy suspects the governor was surprised by how much opposition there was to the bill, since his office was “deluged” with calls from people who opposed the measure.
