euthanasia 1Proponents of assisted suicide are not giving up, including in a state where that radical view is not accepted by the pro-life majority.

A bill to legalize physician-assisted suicide has been introduced before lawmakers in Indiana, where it’s unlikely to pass since Republicans control both houses of the legislature.

Mike Fichter of Indiana Right to Life says the push is being noticed for its attempt to lobby the medical community into accepting it.

“And of course, at its core, when you have any legislation like this introduced,” he says, “it's a threat to the dignity of human life and it's also a threat to the ethics of the medical profession.”

Fichter says the left-wing effort is a familiar one: Hammer away at a “progressive” cause until a law is finally passed, then use the existing law to modify and expand the progressive ideology.

“What we may see are attempts to water this down,” he predicts, “and then you have a less-threatened version. Or we always have to be on the lookout for vehicle bills that could possibly be out there, and this gets amended into it to everyone's surprise.”
