Death is against the law

In One Town, It May Soon Be Illegal To Die

POSTED: 7:17 am PST December 14, 2005

BIRITIBA MIRIM, Brazil -- In one Brazilian farm town, it could soon be against the law to die.

The town doesn't have any more room to bury the dead, and a federal law prevents the town from expanding its cemetery. And to protest that law, the mayor is suggesting that the town council outlaw death.

Residents would be told to "take good care of your health in order not to die." And they'd be warned that "infractors will be held responsible for their acts."

An aide to the mayor admits that the idea is "laughable" -- not to mention unconstitutional. But he says there's no better way to get the government to change the environmental-protection law and allow a new cemetery to be built.
