Astonishingly, and with no national fanfare, New Hampshire's house and senate approved a bill, HB 656 that will permit the starvation of patients. The Nashua Telegraph, in a stirring editorial, has called upon the governor of the state to veto the bill.
The newspaper points out the obvious:
Life is a gift from God and must be cherished and protected. While many of the clauses in the bill help to strengthen patient rights and codify specific policies, it is defective to the point that it must be vetoed. It does not protect life until the last moment of natural death.
American Life League agrees! But why is the National Right to Life Committee's state affiliate supporting this bill?
