[quote]Who takes issue with this?[/quote]
One the main critiques about euthanasia is that it devalues all life. While the focus is usually on older, terminally ill patients, this article suggests next steps well beyond terminal senior citizens. Allowing a child that is 12 years old to commit suic...

The gay argument is big to evangelicals because it will increasingly be a tool used against the church. Redefining marriage is just one step in the process.

Their Signature line of suits isn't bad quality. Their lower end line of suits can be a little rough.

We've been with the kiddos. We went on a random fall weekend and the crowds were manageable. The clientele were not really that bad, I would put them a step above what you would randomly find at Disney.
