NZ referendum legalises euthanasia and assisted suicide
New Zealand has voted to legalise euthanasia and assisted suicide, following a public referendum.
The End of Life Choice Act was passed in the country‚Äôs parliament last year by 69 votes to 51, allowing doctors to administer or supply lethal doses of drugs to patients. However, it still required official public support before it could become law.
New Zealand will join a tiny group of countries that allow the practices, including the Netherlands and Canada.
Legalizing the killing of people demonstrates the moral and principled decline of nations today. The country already legalizes the killing of the unborn child by abortion so no surprise there.
Another nation progresses towards lawlessness. Reprobates in the nations today appear to be increasing their rebellion and transgression to God and His laws.
Proverbs 29:16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall."
2Thes 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:"
And: Are they 'deluded'? 2Thes 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
