Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Doctor-assisted suicide (45% morally acceptable, 48% morally wrong, 3% difference) - No, really. In 2011, this still divides us more than anything. While everyone's been out beating the drum on gay marriage and abortion and King George's taxes on tea, the rest of the country secretly time traveled back to 1991.

While I completely understand euthanasia being a divisive issue -- the old "South Park" that addressed it featured basically every character ultimately saying they wouldn't touch it with a 30-foot pole -- talking about it still gives me that fuzzy retro feeling. Like, when I hear people debate doctor-assisted suicide I want to listen to Jesus Jones' "Right Here, Right Now" and drink a Crystal Pepsi.

[Note: This survey was conducted a few weeks before Jack Kevorkian died, so doctor-assisted suicide wasn't number one because he was in the news again. Also, I wrote this list on Thursday, June 2nd, not realizing I would be publishing it on the same day he died. It's all just a coincidence. An odd, odd coincidence.]
