Euthanasia

Euthanasia, or voluntary assisted suicide, has been the subject of much moral, religious, philosophical, legal and human rights debate in Australia.

Each and every one of us is going to face death. How, when and where we do not know. I am not afraid of death. What many are afraid of is the possibility of years, months, weeks or even days in pain that is not warranted, uncalled for and unnecessary. 

Towards the end of one life morphine for the pain is given but in some cases it causes more distress and discomfort because their body can not take it. This can be very distressing for not only the patient but also the family.

No one is God and no one has the right to dictate to another how they should face death or when. Religious institutions, the medical profession and politicians have no right to impose their beliefs, wishes or political agenda on any individual when it comes to death. 

In a humane society, when an animal is in pain or suffering we put it out of its misery. Most people have a deep love for their animals, and having to put their animal down is like parting with a family member. Yet we are denied this same humane act when it comes to people why

Before death most of us make out a will. We choose someone we trust to be executor of our will and to carry out our wishes with the distribution of our possessions. A person’s body is no different.

ONE NATION PROPOSES

That a citizen or resident of Australia, 18years and older would have the right to have a legal document drawn up with regards to being Euthanised.

The document must appoint two people as executor of the medical will, and it must stipulate, when that persons wishes are to be carried out.

A decision for the patient to be Euthanised must be agree upon by both executors, and a medical doctor who is familiar with the patients medical history, must also give his or her authority.
