In response to the whole bruhaha in California, Seconhand Smoke, a conservative site discussing science and policy issues, has a post entitled If Doctors Should Not Execute, They Should Not Euthanize. In it, he argues that if we want to be "consistent," we should not let doctors kill anyone – not convicts, not really sick people who want to die.
Of course, this sounds very Christian, but I wonder what Dobson would say? Probably kill criminals, but don’t kill people. Me, I say let trained technicians or doctors do executions, and let them help people die w/ dignity. What say you?
