It is primitive ideology to prevent a terminally ill patient's right to euthanasia.

These patients endure a pain many people could not fathom, and by not legalizing physician-assisted suicide 46 states declare that the patients must deal with that pain.

The United States of America bolted its foundation on the rights and liberties of freedom, the freedom to do as you please if others are not harmed.

By denying the liberties it promised, America has become a hypocrite.
