Commandment violated

Eldon Cyrus

We should choose “who lives and who dies” according to Deborah Russell letter printed Jan 27. Although I hold to the opposing viewpoints as hers, I am in agreement with her that the Supreme Court upholding Oregon’s law granting death wishes via federal regulated narcotics is similar to the ongoing abortion debate. One similarity is that in both instances the Supreme Court has taken action to overturn the sixth of the Ten Commandments. Thou shalt not kill. Perhaps they will attempt to overturn the other nine as well. As to the slipperiness of the slope that our highest court has set us on, Mrs. Russell letter and stated pro-choice position offers no evidence that the slope is not slippery either. The number of abortions since the Roe vs. Wade is over 44 million. That’s a lot of slippery. We should not choose who lives and who dies.
