THE ARMCHAIR ANALYST:
DEATH BE NOT
In a stunning display of legal acumen, the Supreme Court ruled
in a 6-3 decision that Oregon physicians may prescribe drugs to kill
their patients. It would seem that Oregonians desire to be progres-
sive both in life and death.
Opponents of the ruling argue that Death has been an ongoing
problem for a number of years: that, despite our best efforts, the
world mortality rate stands at a staggering 100 percent. These in-
dividuals contend that the government should advance such quaint
policies as to protect the lives of its citizens.
Proponents, however, argue that the Supreme Court decision
reflects our government's concern over the coming Social Security
crisis. Our country's leaders realize that if their parents keep living
much longer, there won't be any welfare state left for them. Further,
the proponents of the ruling tout the numerous social benefits of
physician-assisted suicide, including the advantages to the soon-to-
be-terminal patient. Consider: with the new legalized suicide policy,
"DEATH-ON-DEMAND IS A MARK OF
A PROGRESSIVE SOCIETY LIKE
THE ANCIENT ROMANS."
cancer patients will no longer have to resort to dirty, dangerous
back-alley suicides. Death-on-demand is a mark of a progressive
society — like the ancient Romans.
Another upside to the ruling has been the expansion of the
economy. Not only will there be an upswing in the market for
prescription drugs, but other companies will see their market
share expand. Inspired by the fact that life-saving drugs could le-
gitimately be used to kill people, firearm manufacturers Smith &
Wesson, Heckler & Koch, and Colt announced new guidelines for
their products. Legitimate uses include: night-lights, door wedges,
bookmarks, drink stirrers, or anti-depressants.
Remember, the irony won't bother you if you're dead.
