Well, I think that people need to have the *choice* to call on
Kevorkian or someone like him if they wish.  I think the thing to do is
not to fight *against* PAS, but to fight *for* the social services that
are being placed on the chopping block.  I.e. health care, services for
the elderly.  To argue against PAS, IMO, is a retreatist strategy.
