About Carlos Gomez

To me, the moment that the state has a compelling interest in is precisely when human life is most vulnerable -- the very young, the very old, and all of us in between who is some ways are handicapped, disabled, are vulnerable to exploitation, ... Those of us who are able-bodied, who are able to articulate our own interests, who have access to all the resource in society, we really don't need the state's help. We'll do just fine. It's the others that concern me.

My father, who was a doctor, died of pancreatic cancer. But he was clear about what he wanted done and not done. No hospitals, no invasive surgeries. He had a living will, which is like a narrative of your life that you get to finish. It was his legacy -- what he wanted to leave his family: emotionally, financially, spiritually.

There is this argument that to me is rabidly fascist, which is that one's worth is in some way or perhaps completely determined by one's functionality, ...

The language of the court decisions on the topic is quite frightening, ... One appellate court said that the state has a lessened interest in human life when that life is terminal. Think about that for just a second! If that doesn't turn things on its head!
