With the death last week of Jack “Dr. Death” Kevorkian, famed medical practitioner and suicide hobbyist, we have an opportunity to contrast our culture’s values against its classic sources. More pointedly, in examining the doctor’s life and values, we ought to ask a tough question. That is, whether, when Kevorkian was being allowed to help those wanting suicide , if that better reveals our convictions than our supposed religion? Sadly, the answer may be, “yes.” But there are strong reasons why his ideas will always lead to tragic outcomes. For example, such a blasé’ attitude towards life explains why our society throws babies away like garbage in the name of “family planning.” So maybe this is who we really are, deep down—a Kevorkian Nation, unified together in the name of convenience? This is the topic of today’s essay.
