Good essay by Arthur Goldberg on Assisted Suicide in US and Canada

Here is a link to a good essay in Public Discourse by Arthur Goldberg on assisted suicide in the US and Canada. In the essay, he discusses a congressional resolution that has been introduced expressing opposition to assisted suicide. Here is his concluding paragraph:

“Because secular humanism is attempting to replace G-d as the final moral arbiter of life and death, it is urgent that we restore the biblical values of America’s founders. We ignore at our peril the universal moral ethics given to us by G-d through the Noahide Code, which were incorporated in our founding documents. These values were recognized on a bipartisan basis as the ethical and moral underpinnings of America. One immediate action that can be taken to support these inalienable rights is to encourage Congress to pass its resolution condemning assisted suicide.”
