How am I going to choose which of my children will live?
You think this is my idea of what life reallyl looks like?
That's a very depressing view of life old man.
They told me I was to come here so someone could paint my picture.
Well, Miss Duncan! Miss Duncan!
A woman just had triplets.
In a Chicago hospital waits a Edward Wehling. His wife is having triplets. In order for all three to live, three people must die. This controls the population.
How will I choose which one lives.
A hospital worker walks past the painter and compliments him. He says that he likes his mural. The painter, being a miserable old man, contradicts the worker. The painter feels life is gloomy.
Leora Duncan walks in. She is a termination bureau worker who is to be painted into the garden. Just then, Dr Hitz walks in. He is the hospital's chief obstetrician. He and Leora talk for a while. He is highly respected and admired by Leora.
Dr. Hitz mentions that a woman has given birth to triplets. Wehling speaks up and says that it's his wife. He is very upset. In order for all three of his children to live, three people must die. Wehling only has one person prepared to die.
Wehling pulls out a gun and shoots Dr. Hitz, Leora Duncan, and then himself.
No one heard the shots except the painter who was off in the distance. No one came running. The painter considered killing himself. Instead, he called the assisted suicide clinic's number, and scheduled an appointment.
