Only in California: Assisted Suicide Legal, Gay Conversion Therapy Illegal!

California, long recognized as the ‘land of nuts and fruits,’ has added significantly to the state’s goofy image thanks to the all-too- predictable, whacky approval pen of Governor “Moonbeam.” Jerry Brown.

Specifically, as reported at reference 1:

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed landmark legislation Monday, allowing terminally ill patients to obtain lethal medication to end their lives when and where they choose.

In a deeply personal note, Brown said he read opposition materials carefully, but in the end was left to reflect on what he would want in the face of his own death.

I do not know what I would do if I were dying in prolonged and excruciating pain,” he wrote. “I am certain, however, that it would be a comfort to be able to consider the options afforded by this bill. And I wouldn’t deny that right to others.”

Brown’s anti-life decision is challenged in insanity only by his approval of a bill that outlawed gay conversion therapy, as described at reference 2:

California’s ban on gay conversion therapy is set to take effect after the Supreme Court declined to hear two cases challenging its legality.

The measure prohibits mental health providers from “engaging in sexual orientation change efforts” with minors, meaning that therapists and other licensed counselors are not allowed to engage in the controversial practice of attempting to rid someone under 18 of homosexual feelings. Governor Jerry Brown signed the ban into law in 2012, but it has been delayed by a series of legal challenges.

Opponents argued that the ban infringes on rights to free speech and freedom of religion, while supporters defended the ban as an extension of the conditions for providing licenses to counselors in the state. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with that argument, upholding the law in 2013. The Supreme Court ended its term today without hearing two challenges to that ruling, effectively permitting the law to take effect.”

Once again, California takes the lead in enacting legislation which crassly minimizes the value of human life, while simultaneously denying professional help to those seeking escape from the morally and spiritually crippling ravages of the gay lifestyle!

Shame on California and Governor Jerry Brown!
