Telling College Kids That Killing’s OK

Ah yes, those malleable college kids. . . Read this editorial from the University of Connecticut and ask yourself where the balance of good reporting is. Clue: You won’t find it. It leaves impressionable readers with the clear idea that yes; we should have people killed off if they are suffering. The heck with killing the suffering – just kill the patient, and presto!! Problem solved!!
Editorial: CT's assisted suicide ban is unreasonable
Every year, numerous people are diagnosed with fatal illnesses that have the potential to cause excruciating pain in their later stages. These people may accept their impending deaths, but more difficult may be the pain that accompanies the period before it. Those that may feel at peace and are prepared to die can’t be assisted in passing peacefully by Connecticut doctors. It is a reasonable request of the patients and the act shouldn’t be illegal. more
