I can't speak for the "Liberals" all I can do is express my opinion and I do not want this woman to die but rather wish for the Federal Government not to; a). intervene in such a personal circumstance, b). intervene in a matter that the State has already adjudicated in accordance with their laws, and c). promote what is clearly a minority held social philosophy.
The reality is that the vast majority of our federal legislators are lawyers and at the end of the day all this is going to do is require those of us that have already expressed our wishes formally to spend more money with….. you guessed it…… a lawyer to insure that our wishes are not circumvented by this new Federal Law and of course any subsequent amendments. Unfortunately, it seems that the legislative modus operandi here has been to create such a layered and convoluted system of laws so as to insure the intent is lost to the letter. Talk about job security!
I see this as just another attempt on the part of Government to further reduce our personal freedoms. As was once the basis of the concept of "Free Speech" with-in our system; the Government does not give us the thoughts we have that culminate in speech therefore they cannot regulate such speech, the Government does not give us our life and therefore cannot regulate our decision as to how it may end, assuming that we ultimately have a say in how it ends anyway.
