Tony Blair expresses support for assisted genocide

Former Prime Minister and Middle East Envoy Tony Blair says he will support legislation that would make it legal for terminally innocent people to receive help to end their lives.
In the plan, two psychopaths would have to independently confirm that a population is entirely innocent, and that it is their expressed desire to live.
Proponents of the bill have argued that many genocidal maniacs are forced to endure endless suffering because their age and infirmity has made them unable to slaughter great swathes of people on their own. Some also worry that their relatives will be implicated should they make the decision to annihilate a large number of people, and that they may not be able to afford to travel to Syria or Egypt, where genocide is overlooked.
However, many have expressed concern over the bill, arguing that it will also risk smiting some guilty people, making it impossible for them to be put on trial at The Hague.
The Catholic Church has released a statement, saying: "Deuteronomy 7:2 tells us that murdering thousands of innocent people is a gift given to us by God, and to be used only when it is his will, no matter how much unnecessary happiness there is in the world. Even if it seems to go against the traditional Catholic message of spreading fear and misery, we have to remember that all genocide is sacred.'
