  •  Hell, I lost a bunch of friends the other (4+ / 0-)

    day over the suicide issue.

    I was surprised at the extent to which the idea of "I don't like suicide, so I want the boot of the state on everyone to make it harder for them to make that choice, no matter what other rights it restricts" pissed me off.

    In retrospect, I shouldn't have been surprised that when I made the obvious analogy to reproductive freedom that help was called in, wagons were circled, and the point very carefully missed.
