Rick Reece 4/9/12 Legalize Assisted Suicide The year is 1987 and Dr. Kevorkian started advertisements in Detroit newspapers, which he was advertising himself as a physician consultant for “death consulting.” Dr. Kevorkian’s first public assisted suicide was in 1990, of Janet Adkins, who was 54-years-old and was diagnosed Alzheimer’s disease in 1989. Kevorkian was charged with murder, but the charges were dropped because there weren’t laws regarding assisted suicide in Detroit at the time. Kevorkian then lost his medical license do to the controversy. Between 1990 and 1998, Dr. Kevorkian helped end 130 terminally ill patient’s lives. Kevorkian allegedly only assisted in the patients’ deaths by attaching a device to them, in which the patients would press a button to finally end their life painlessly and on their own terms.
Prayer in public schools is a controversial topic that has taken top-billing on many of Americans minds. In the article, Banning Prayer in Public Schools Has Led to America’s Demise by Gary Bergel states in the first paragraph, “On June 25, l962, 39 million students were forbidden to do what they and their predecessors had been doing since the founding of our nation – publicly calling upon the name of the Lord at the beginning of each school day.” Bergel is attempting to state that America has decreased in morals since this date as well as forbidding prayer at that time. These are the first two incorrect points of this article. They are by no means the only ones but these will be the two major points of contention addressed. First, the date Bergel uses is in reference to the court case of Engel V. Vitale in New York.
