THE ZEALLESS SECULARISTS (via Mike Daley):

The Final Freedom: Suicide and the New Prohibitionists (Tom Flynn, Free Inquiry)

This issue's special section on physician-assisted suicide puts me in mind of a larger issue: suicide, period. While suicide has never been exactly popular, a new assault on our right to suicide is brewing. It's something secular humanists ought to resist.

If they wanted to show us all that they are a serious resistance movement they'd take a page from the Jews atop Masada. As is, they're all talk, no action.

So-called "physican assisted" suicide is just a way for cowards to get what they can't do for themselves.

If the advocates were truly honest, they'd be arguing for the legalization of "Ethical Suicide Parlors," available to anyone for any reason, staffed by state certified Licensed Executioners.
