Ashcroft and the Bush administration's totalitarian attempts to overturn Oregon's assisted suicide law, the only one of its kind in the nation, gets slapped down by the Supreme Court in a 6-3 vote. If you want to see me get opinionated, read my editorial applauding the decision here. The issue of assisted suicide is a grim one, but it's one I'm quite passionately for. I simply don't think it's anything the government should step in and tell a horribly ill cancer-ridden patient they can't choose their own fate. Funny how the Bush-ites claim to be for "state's rights" and keeping the government "off your backs," but only when it comes to issues that dovetail with their own philosophy...
