->''"Death is not an option."''

to:

->''"Death ->''"Meet Oswald Danes. Teacher. Or, rather, '''was'''. Now he's a prisoner, for raping and murdering a 12-year-old girl, and when asked about his crime only said: "She should've run faster."''

->''The death penalty
is a charged topic, a question of whether it is justice or vengeance, whether or not it is wrong for the state to have the power to take a life, whether it is a punishment unfairly used, or better than they deserve. It is a question that causes much debate.''

->''And yet in the case of Oswald Danes, there was no one at the prison to protest his execution. No one wants to stand by a man who abused the trust placed in him, performed so immoral
an option.act, and then snuffed out a life [when] it barely had time to take in the potential of this world. Oswald Danes is a reminder of the words of Millaud when voting on the fate of King Louis XVI: "Today, if death did not exist, it would be necessary to invent it."''

->''[...] Today is the day that death does not exist.
"''

* MST3KMantra: The final episode attempts to invoke this with regard to [[spoiler:the Blessing]], with the Mother saying that being unable to explain what it is adds a little wonder to the universe, and Jack and Gwen laughing their asses off at their having absolutely no idea what it is.[[invoked]]

** While [[Series/DoctorWho Nurse Rory's]] absence can be explained away by the fact he's never actually met Jack, where the hell are Martha and Mickey? You remember Martha, Torhwood medical contact that surely would have been mentioned in that file the CIA had somewhere and as a ''doctor'' would have been pretty involved with the Miracle anyways. They don't even bother to HandWave her absence like they did in COE.

* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Horrifically averted. The consequences of immortality without any sort of healing factor are made gruesomely clear early on. It's also established that people continue to age as normal. Even if you manage to avoid all injury and disease for the rest of your life, would it still be worth living by the time you're 1000 years old and considerably more frail than the oldest living human has ever been?

** Stuart Owens, a Phicorp bigwig, is notable for being rather helpful and non-antagonistic despite qualifying for this. As he puts it, "I'm not a bad man. I'm not a good man, either. I'm a... ''[[TrueNeutral middle]]'' [[TitleDrop man.]]"
