LET’S BE COMPASSIONATE ABOUT EUTHANASIA
Good to hear that the new WA Health Minister Roger Cook is saying that we need to have a community discussion about voluntary euthanasia in Western Australia.
Euthanasia has got nothing to do with religion or any of the gods people believe in but it is about humanity and dying with dignity.
We don’t allow animals to suffer and euthanise them when they no longer have a good quality of life, but we do keep people alive who should be able to decide if they want to go because the suffering is unbearable and there is no hope of recovery.
A Sunday Times survey last year found that nearly 90 per cent of Western Australians support voluntary euthanasia, and I do too!
