As the baby boomer generation edges ever closer to their (our) last days like a pig through a snake, the controversy over assisted suicide will loom ever larger in public consciousness. In Great Britian, the issue has exploded with a series of widely publicized revelations of compassionate killing, including a shocking on-air admission by a well known television personality.
“I did the right thing,” he told the BBC. “If there’s a heaven and he’s looking down, he’d be proud of me.”
I suspect that Jack Kevorkian's campaign to allow doctor-assisted suicide will be seen in a very positive light by future generations.
