Death’s Friendly, Convenient Home Service

Well, you will now get home delivery of permanent peace added to your parcels and pizza, at least if you’re Dutch. Dutch Mobile Euthanasia Unit to Make House Calls explains. We recently reported Australian medical ethics pros who just announced that post-birth abortion that we used to call infanticide is perfectly ok; newborns aren’t ‘persons.’ But for some reason, we get yelled at for advocating the death penalty for murderers though it was fine to assassinate Bin Laden or any of the Taliban or per the President, anyone he considers a threat. Putting it all together leaves me confused.

Somehow it seems I remember when life and death rules made sense and didn’t change; you could count on them. They didn’t change mainly because they were thought handed down from God, with whom you couldn’t argue. Now they’re handed down from judges and politicians; you still can’t argue and you never know for sure what they’re going to do to you. I suspect we might feel more secure if we had God back…

But we’ll now need a whole new outlook if this spreads. We won’t be at Death’s door; he’ll be at ours. Will he use a plain, unmarked vehicle so the neighbors won’t notice? Or will he have something in tasteful black, say with a small, dignified gold skull for a hood ornament? This visitor will undoubtedly have a schedule to keep; if some client proves stubborn under standard dispatching, will the functionary carry a handy Colt .45 to hasten things back on schedule? Oh, and who will sign for completed services if the client is alone? What sorts of guarantees will be needed, if any?

I think that at least for a while, I’ll try to avoid landing in the Netherlands when not feeling well…
