Respect For Life

There are many things about the culture of the United States that I’m proud of. But, the continued imprisonment of Jack Kevorkian is a source of deep shame.

I think that The World gets it right when they say that people denied the right to die, and now (ironically) Kevorkian himself, are being “ritually tortured to death.”

And, all this is done under the cover of an avowed desire to promote a “Culture of Life”.

What does it make more sense to respect?: Beating hearts, or the informed choices of people about how (and whether) to proceed with their own lives?

I’ve posted on this before, but I won’t agree that we talk about it enough until these obscene laws are repealed, and people’s right to make their own choices is upheld.
