You can still resist a Suicide State

Tuesday, October 6, 2015, 5:56 pm | Randy Thomasson

The godless media that doesn’t investigate corrupt government or bad bills is fawning over Jerry Brown for signing the suicide promotion bill.

They think ABX2-15 gives them the choice when to die. But the fact is, this terrible bill allows pro-suicide forces in the government, insurance companies, and hospitals to steer sick, elderly, uninformed, and confused people to “agree” to suicide because the powers that be see them as cheaper dead. The bill does not prevent this money-motivated pressure.

Since Pandora’s Box has been opened, expect this to happen in many families, including church families. Elder abuse is already a huge problem in America. Under the California bill, a legal heir is permitted to be part of the request for the suicide pill, there’s no witness at death, no requirement to self-administer the lethal drug (someone else could do it to you), forgery is functionally permitted of a final attestation form, a false cause of death must go on the death certificate, and there’s no prosecution because nothing can be called “homicide” or “elder abuse” even if the evidence says otherwise. See how this “assisted suicide” bill sets up weak and vulnerable Californians to be killed off for money?

Consider the current law’s strong deterrent against pressuring or “assisting” someone to commit suicide. One of the big reasons for this law is to prevent deceitful murders that perpetrators call mere suicides!

California Penal Code Section 401: Every person who deliberately aids, or advises, or encourages another to commit suicide, is guilty of a felony.

How will this play out? Stop and think about how the pronouncement “it’s terminal” depresses a patient. And consider that 12 million Americans are misdiagnosed ever year in our country.

And the terrible thing, under ABX2-15, a doctor can say you’re “terminal” without factoring in medical-establishment treatments to extend your life and certainly without talking about natural-medicine cures that can heal you. If you think you’re a “burden” on family, friends, and caretakers, all the better for the suicide agenda. In Oregon, 40% of those committing “assisted suicide” reported one of their top “end-of-life concerns” was that they were a “burden on family, friends/caregivers.”

And realize that this “assisted suicide” law isn’t just for people who are “dying,” but for people who are “eligible.” This includes an 18-year-old with Type 1 diabetes who is insulin dependent. Because in Oregon, a “terminal” label doesn’t take into account any treatment. How’s that for informed consent? Because of the broad eligibility under ABX2-15, “assisted suicide” can cut short the lives of people who would otherwise have years, even decades, to live.

As I’ve said, I’ll say again — concerned families should make plans now to never allow sick family members to be alone in the hospital, and to rethink whether convalescent homes and hospices are safer elsewhere, in states that don’t promote suicide, such as Nevada and Arizona.

However, what’s immediately needed is a lawsuit to strike down ABX2-15 for violating the California Constitution’s requirement that extraordinary legislative session bills stick to the subject and don’t deviate from the governor’s proclamation, which in this case, was Medi-Cal funding, and not suicide in any way, shape, or form.

For more talking points to educate people in your family, in your church, and in your local media, see SaveCalifornia.com’s Oct. 5 news release.

However, none of these men committed suicide. Solomon learned to “fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind” (Ecclesiastes 12:13). Elijah was comforted by an angel, allowed to rest, and given a new commission. Jonah received admonition and rebuke from God. Paul learned that, although the pressure he faced was beyond his ability to endure, the Lord can bear all things: “This happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead” (2 Corinthians 1:9).
What is the Christian view of suicide? What does the Bible say about suicide?

Together, we fought the good fight (but Jerry Brown promoted suicide)

If you partnered with SaveCalifornia.com against California becoming a Suicide State, THANK YOU! You did a very good thing. You stood for what’s right by championing Life.

You stood up for a just, civilized, moral, and pro-life society with SaveCalifornia.com. And for the love of God and people, that’s what we must continue to do — in our homes, neighborhoods, churches, community, state, nation, and the world.

With Democrat Governor Jerry Brown today signing ABX2-15 to change California’s ethic from “suicide is wrong” to “sometimes suicide is good,” California will become THE Suicide State — UNLESS this bad law, which will likely go into effect in January, is repealed through a lawsuit or ballot measure.

We must respond to evil the way God wants us to. On sad days like this, when terrible agendas attack Godly, pro-family, pro-life values that you and I hold dear, will we run for cover, go silent, insulate ourselves, and pretend these battles don’t exist? OR will we do what’s right, and faithfully and prayerfully shine the light of Truth wherever we have a fighting chance? Because God always has something for us to do!

Here at SaveCalifornia.com, we believe that standing and speaking the truth — with a loving motivation — is always a success. THANK YOU AGAIN for doing your part alongside the leadership of SaveCalifornia.com and our Campaign for Children and Families. We’re privileged to be your pro-family and moral values advocate here in California.

Here’s the news release SaveCalifornia.com sent to the media today. This life-and-death issue will continue to be at the forefront in our state and nation. And you will no doubt find yourself in the middle of conversations about California being an “assisted suicide” state. Our news release talking points on ABX2-15 will empower you to be an articulate voice for truth in your circles of influence.

Only 1 minute to oppose ‘assisted suicide’

Thursday, September 17, 2015, 8:10 pm | Randy Thomasson

A few hours ago, a dear woman who is deeply against “assisted suicide” because someone in her family was euthanized called me to share her detective work on Jerry Brown’s administration.

She told me that when you use the governor’s web form, you can now click the suicide bill, oppose it, and your “vote” will be instantly tabulated by their computer.

So please do this right now — it only takes 1 minute! And then share with others how they can do the same. Help build a tidal wave of opposition against California becoming the Suicide State.


1. Go to https://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php

2. Under “Email the Governor,” choose “Have Comment”

3. Enter your First Name, Last Name, and Email Address

4. Under “Please Choose Your Subject,” scroll down to the very bottom of the list and select X2AB00015\End of life. (this is what the governor’s staff wrote and even though it’s not the exact number of the bill, they know it’s “assisted suicide,” so go with it)

5. Click “Continue”

6. A new page will open up

7. At the top of this new page, you must choose “Con” in order to have your opposition immediately counted (THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART)

8. Under “Write your email,” you may enter in additional comments about why the “assisted suicide” bill is bad (some users have said you must write something in order to process your request, such as “Veto assisted suicide”)

9. Click “Send Email” and you’re done

Do all 3: Web form, phone, fax

1. PHONE: Call the Governor’s comment line at 916-445-2841 9am – 5pm Monday through Friday. Push the buttons to get to a live representative and tell them you want the Governor to veto “assisted suicide,” ABX2-15.

2. FAX: Copy and paste SaveCalifornia.com’s pre-written, expert letter onto your business, church, school, or organization letterhead. All who fax Governor Jerry Brown their opposition to ABX2-15 on their official letterhead are a significant voice FOR natural “days of our lives” and AGAINST “assisted suicide.” Your business/church/school/organization represents people and community influence!

Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.
