Supreme Court justice Augustine Nash thought mandatory euthanasia at 50 was a great way to contain soaring health care costs---until he turned 50 himself. In this piercing futuristic look at life in the year 2038, Augustine's son John must grapple with forgiveness, love, and God as he races to save his father from the dehumanizing forces his own ruling hand set in motion.
In the year 2038, abortions are the long-accepted means of population control, and euthanasia has become a means for cutting enormous health care costs. It is the responsibility of each citizen to willingly be terminated at age 50. Those who resist are hunted down by tag men. With reproduction done mechanically in a lab and the citizens being terminated for the "greater good" life and love have lost all meaning.Into this bleak setting steps tag man, John Nash, an unlikely and unwilling hero whose father wrote the Supreme Court majority opinion that made euthanasia mandatory. When his father's termination date comes up and his mother re-enters his life, Nash must grapple with forgiveness, love, and eventually the heart and will of God as he races to save his father.* Addresses the abortion issue and makes readers re-think their view of Roe vs. Wade.* If there is any truth to the adage, "what comes around goes around", it is found in Cunningham's searing prophecy of a society where twenty-five is middle-aged and euthanasia has become the chief means of reducing surplus population.
