Because they don't think we're not responsible enough to make that decision methinks!

........................................







Catch 22 ..................   



How ironic that a perfectly fit individual can jump off a building for little reason ..........

Yet, a man bound in a pointless and helpless cycle with many reasons to terminate has no rights ................   


Especially, in a world where in the last century death has rained from the skies on civilians, a decision that many seemed able to do without compassion ..............

Yes, perfectly ironic....and idiotic that we've given our lawmakers so much power over us and our right to choose this sort of thing.

JACK KEVORKIAN, 1928-2011
Dr. Jack Kevorkian Dies at 83; A Doctor Who Helped End Lives
By KEITH SCHNEIDER
He died at William Beaumont Hospital, where he had been admitted recently with kidney and respiratory problems, said Geoffrey N. Fieger, the lawyer who represented Dr. Kevorkian in several of his trials in the 1990s.

Mayer Morganroth, a friend and lawyer, told The Associated Press that the official cause of death would most likely be pulmonary thrombosis, a blood clot.

In arguing for the right of the terminally ill to choose how they die, Dr. Kevorkian challenged social taboos about disease and dying while defying prosecutors and the courts. He spent eight years in prison after being convicted of second-degree murder in the death of the last of about 130 ailing patients whose lives he had helped end, beginning in 1990.

Wow ............   !

That is very controversial  ..............

The sentence (8 years) ...........

Would seem to tell us that the authorities were very unsure of even where they stood on this  ............

There must be many people in a 'cabbage like' state that would like the right to make a decision .......

About themselves and theoretically just keeping people alive because of technology and drugs could be deemed as torture maybe  .............
