Do not legalize assisted suicide in South Africa
In South Africa, the raging debate is on assisted suicide also known as Euthanasia.
A group of activists are in court asking the judicial system to make it a requirement for doctors in South Africa to kill on demand.
South Africa has cut herself as a "progressive " African country having legalized abortion, homosexuality and even comprehensive sexuality education.
The legalisation of all these vices is a breeding ground for activists who have no regard for the sanctity of human life and the family institution.
In 2015, the Supreme Court of South Africa had ruled against assisted suicide when a lawyer called Robert Stransham-Ford, launched an urgent application in the Pretoria High Court for an order that a doctor be legally entitled to give him a lethal dose to end his life.
The supreme court ruled that this was not the right matter to develop the common law on such a crucial matter but it seems the activists are determined.
Assisted Suicide will not only open a pandora's box on murder and death on demand but also will place South Africa as a country that disregards human dignity.
A human being naturally has a right to life from conception till natural death but it seems now South African activists want to place the lives of the aged, the sick and even the vulnerable in the hands of doctors who already have been killing innocent pre-boprn babies through abortion.
Sign this petition, let us not allow assisted suicide to be made legal in South Africa.
