So When Am I Allowed to Die?

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

grim reaperIn case you missed it, Save Jerseyans, Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-West Deptford) is sponsoring Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act‘ (that cleared the Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee about one week ago, by the way) to make New Jersey the sixth state in the U.S. to permit so-called “physician-assisted suicide.”

Ghoulish? You bet.

Read it for yourself. There are plenty of compelling substantive objections. I’ve got some serious questions, too.

For starters, what’s to stop the kids from killing grandma?


LD3 GOP Slate Decided

Trunk, Wallace and Vanderslice Expected to Take on Steve Sweeney in Bid to Turn His District Republican Red

By Matt Rooney The Save Jersey Blog

LD3We’ve had indepenent confirmation from a very reliable source that the Republican ticket in New Jersey’s 3rd legislative district is ready to roll, Save Jerseyans. All that remains is for an announcement date to be set.

A local blog, Salem County Watchdog, has also apparently been following this story closely and its information seems to comport with our own.

Attorney Niki Trunk is reportedly prepared take on Senate President Steve Sweeney; she is the former deputy mayor of Harrison Township and, until very recently, worked in New Jersey’s Office of the State Comptroller for the Medicaid Fraud Division. She has a MBA and law degree both from Temple University.

Trunk’s entry is no surprise and has been the topic of rumors for weeks; the more recent news is down ballot where apparently Gloucester County Freeholder Larry Wallace and Salem County Freeholder Bob Vanderslice are expected to run for the two Assembly seats current respectively occupied by Asm. John Burzichelli and Asw. Celeste Riley.


Your Rights to Pay and Die

Your “Rights” Under a Liberal Regime Boil Down to Two Inescapable Institutions: Death and Taxes

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Calvary Cemetery QueensIn case you missed it last week, Save Jerseyans, Democrat Assemblyman John Burzichelli’s “New Jersey Death with Dignity Act” (A3328) cleared the Assembly Health Committee.

The current language would permit New Jersey adults with only 6-months to live due to a diagnosed terminal disease to kill themselves with medication. Grizzly stuff, huh? Remind me never to cough or look ill around Assemblyman Burzichelli!

But he’s not alone on this one. Liberals generally support assisted suicide. Speaker Sheila Oliver hasn’t decided whether to schedule a vote for Burzichelli’s measure, but Senate President Steve Sweeney reportedly “supports the bill in concept.” Expect movement on A3328 or its companion bill, folks.

Let’s set aside the morality debate for the time being. Those who don’t value human life for one reason or another aren’t likely to be moved by one blog post. What jumps out at me is the increasingly schizophrenic Democrat definition of “rights.”
