The following is adapted from a lecture delivered on June 18, 2020, for a Hillsdale College online symposium, “The Coronavirus and Public Policy.”

Over the last four months, Americans have lived through what is arguably the most consequential period of government malfeasance in U.S. history. Public officials’ overreaction to the novel coronavirus put American cities into a coma; those same officials’ passivity in the face of widespread rioting threatens to deliver the coup de grĂ¢ce. Together, these back-to-back governmental failures will transform the American polity and cripple urban life for decades.

Who We Are, What We Do, How We Do It

Who we are

Choice is an Illusion, is a non-profit human rights organization opposed to assisted suicide, physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia. Our mission is to defeat the spread of these practices, including more recent incidents of "slow" euthanasia, for example:
The purposeful placement of actively ill COVID patients with nursing home residents; the reduction of options for individuals, including children, to stay healthy, by blocking their access to exercise, social interaction and healthcare; and the destruction of the economy, putting further pressure on individuals and families.
What we do

We fight to stop the spread of assisted suicide and euthanasia, and to defeat it.

How we do it

We provide legal/policy analyses and testimony to legislatures, courts and the public regarding real life problems with assisted suicide and euthanasia. We do this through our websites, our publications and our direct advocacy. We collaborate with other groups and individuals.

HOBBS, NEW MEXICO: The parents of an 11-year-old boy who killed himself this past April say they believe he was driven to suicide by the social isolation brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.

To everyone who knew him, Landon Fuller was the curious and intelligent young boy who loved Marvel, DC, Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Pokemon, Harry Potter, and the innumerable other things that those his age thrived upon, according to a GoFundMe page.

But without warning, Landon rode to a field near his Hobbs, New Mexico, home in April and took his own life. His parents, Katrina and James Fuller, recently spoke about his death and said they still don't know what drove him to take such an extreme measure. They said the only clues they got came from his journal, which indicated that the social isolation necessitated by Covid-19 had taken a heavier toll than they could have imagined....

Now, the Fullers urge other parents to talk to their children even if they seem fine. "I hope his story can at least save at least one life. If so, then his death wasn’t in vain," Katrina said.

Hall announced Wednesday that four members of the House and a State Senator, have joined the movement to launch an impeachment inquiry into Governor Whitmer.

In a unanimous decision by three judges of the Queensland Court of Appeal handed down in Brisbane on 19 June 2020 in the case of R v Morant [2020] QCA 135, Graham Morant’s appeal against his conviction for aiding the suicide of his wife was rejected on all four grounds of appeal and the sentence of 10 years imprisonment was upheld as fair.

Morant was convicted on two counts under s311 of the Queensland Criminal Code. The first was that he had counselled Ms Morant to kill herself and thereby induced her to do so. The second was that he had aided her in killing herself.
