Contraty to the vies of those who oppose recent introduction of the law prohibiting smoking cigarettes, cigars, and pipes in restaurants and other public places, the prohibition is quite justified and long overdue.

A) He is pointing out that the opponents rationalization of the argument leads to an unreasonable conclusion.
B) He attacks his opponents because they are self interested smokers.
C) He points out that his antagonists arguments lead to a choice between equaly undesireable alternatives.
D) He is attempting to draw and analogy between restricting a person's freedom to cross a busy road anywhere one pleases and banning smoking in public places.
E) He demonstrates that the law against jaywalking applies in this country, as well as other democracies, in which civil liberties is paramount.
