I live in Oregon, the physician-assisted suicide state. We were the first principality in human history to legalize physician-assisted suicide. (Though it was practiced in the Netherlands, it wasn't legal.)
Sept. 27, 2004 /Christian Wire Service/ — The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer applauds Eve Sanchez Silver’s courageous decision to resign her position as a charter member of The Susan G.

The question is not asked too often as candidates crisscross America, but it most often is asked in Oregon, the leader in physician assisted suicide.
Both Clinton and Obama were asked their position on the issue while campaigning in Oregon over the past couple of weeks.
It’s not surprising that they would, because while Oregon voters approved the law, other states have not. Yet.
Both candidates are pro-abortion, but what about assisted suicide?
Their answers are not surprising but are rather revealing.
The Eugene Register Guard published an interview with Clinton covering a wide range of topics ...
he following letter is from a mother to her child whom she carried to term after being told the baby would not live outside the womb. Nevaeh was born July 29, 2002, and went home to Jesus a few hours after birth.
Our time together is too quickly coming to an end. I’m going to miss you so much. You will never know me or the depth of my love for you here on earth. I am writing you this letter so that I will never forget a single part of your short little life within me. Because of you I will never be the same. You’ve already taught me so many things. Here is how you first touched my heart...
It’s like the tip of an iceberg, a sharp, damaging, external protrusion that, no matter how much pain it inflicts, only represents the much bigger problem beneath the surface. What is so fierce that it can sink the seemingly hardiest of men, or at least flood a chamber of his heart and debilitate him for life? Abortion.
On the Slave Coast of West Africa in 1880, a land governed by witchcraft and superstition and where human life was cheap, torture by poisoning and boiling oil was the order of the day. Twins, believed to be children of the devil, were abandoned to die, and the mothers banished. But into that suffering came a woman who had been afraid to cross the street alone, who once refused to cross a field because there was a cow in it, who was terrified of crowds and public speaking.

I am not a brave person. More often than not, when God has a difficult assignment for me, I pull a Moses: “I can’t, Lord!...why me???” Recently He gave me a chance to stretch a little... I needed a root canal. To put it mildly, I wasn’t thrilled at the prospect. Yet I made the appointment, knowing I didn’t really have a reasonable alternative.

1. Tailor your presentation to your audience, so you’re speaking to them, not yourself.
2. Do your homework. The other position can afford to be ignorant of the facts. You can’t.
3. Present the facts logically, clearly and succinctly, citing credible sources, secular whenever possible. (PLA contains hundreds of such sources.)

“You shall love your neighbor more than your own life. You shall not slay the child by abortion.” — Barnabas [c. 70-138], Epistles
“For us [Christians], murder is once and for all forbidden; so even the child in womb, while yet the Mother's blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful for us to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder...He is a man, who is to be a man; the fruit is always present in the seed.” — Tertullian, 197, Apologeticus
