    Don’t you dare suggest that suicide is bad.That’s the new approach at the Associated Press.

    “Commit suicide” has been canceled, because sometimes people choose legal suicide.




    In response to the AP’s tweet, an editor responded: “In religious circles, ‘commit’ also implies sin, and this is an outdated and painful implication.”

    Shouldn’t a key takeaway from this past coronavirus pandemic year be: We don’t need more unnecessary death?

    Instead, I fear New York could be on the verge of permitting assisted suicide as people want an option other than nursing homes for their evening years. We must work to change the culture that is slipping toward preferring suicide just as it prefers abortion. We saw this in the nursing-home deaths in New York — and the cover-up — and in other Democratic states’ consistently bad judgment. Andrew Cuomo had already declared his support for assisted suicide before the coronavirus pandemic hit. The greater pandemic we face is the lie that life is a burden. We live in a culture that tells women all too often — and yes, by its law — that an unplanned pregnancy is an impossible burden. And we’re increasingly telling our elderly that they are, too. Is this throwaway society really who we want to be?
