This week on the podcast we are joined by two healthcare professionals, Dr Frank Kueppers and Frauke John, who are both passionate about voluntary euthanasia and wish to inform people on the controversial topic given the level of misinformation being spread by opponents.

Submissions on David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill end in a few days on Tuesday the 20th of February, so if you would like to make a submission you will need to be quick:

    Depression is not something that is treatable for some. This is an issue of forceing religion on those who do not desire it.

    One of the cases Frauke John gives appears to be incorrect, a quick research shows she has confused a 93 year old lady with a 75 year old male, and further research shows that the man killed himself with a firearm not a nail gun (see references below). And these people have the nerve to say the opposition is fear mongering! This debate should be left to professionals of ethics and laws, with contribution from the health profession, not focused on specific health professional personal opinions.

    The real effort should be:
    *Is this morally Justified?
    *Is our palliative care inadequate? Can we fix this?
    *Why do people fear death? and ways to mitigate this.
    *In the slim chances where none of the above can help someone and that person truly wants to end their life is it appropriate bring into a affect a law which has substantial implications (cost/benefit analysis).
    *Is the current proposal ideally suited to physicians? Are they even trained to be able to detect coercion? Would they not be in some way biased?
    *How would such law effect the psyche of peoples mentality? Is this beneficial for society?

    *See the following references for my claims:

      Levi, Please read a little further in the transcript and you will find that the last patient detailed, following the 75 yo man who shot himself, was a 90 yo man with brain cancer, who wanted to end all his futile suffering, and was found dying with wounds to his head and chest from a nail gun. Re your question on palliative care – palliative care themselves accept that up to 5% of suffering cannot be relieved with even the best available palliative care, and these are the very people who should have the additional choice to request a voluntary assisted death.

    What a wonderful podcast/ presentation…..being Dutch, we have grown up with this and I find it terrible that “the other side” just lies and that people believe what “they” say….. instead of informing themselves and standing up for themselves….
