Let Terminally Ill Choose Quality Of Their Death
Ashcroft appears to be using the law only to enforce his personal faith and moral convictions. All of us Americans should defend his right to hold onto his beliefs. But the Constitution is supposed to prevent him from imposing his beliefs on us. Ashcroft's agents have enough on their hands these days trying to track down terrorists. They don't need to be trying to second-guess doctors on how many painkillers they should give out.
