Compassion and respect

Meet your own principles and standards!

It’s not THAT hard to do – “Meet your own principles and standards”.  That’s our message to opponents of voluntary assisted dying who make ignorant and irrational claims especially about the practice of assisted dying overseas. Too often on this issue, religious, medical, academic and political opponents and journalists fail to meet the most basic principles and standards which they claim to support and which we have every right to expect of them.

DwDNSW has published an excellent challenge by a senior Belgian journalist to the false claims by Caroline Overington, Associate Editor of The Australian, that the euthanasia laws in Belgium are being abused. We like his offer to assist her “in fact-checking and research on the practice of euthanasia in those countries where it is permitted”.
