Last edited 24th May 2013

The request which arises from the human heart in the supreme confrontation with suffering and death, especially when faced with the temptation to give up in utter desperation, is above all a request for companionship, sympathy and support in the time of trial.

Last edited 1st May 2013

One of the most frequent arguments in favour of the legalisation of euthanasia in Australia, is that voluntary euthanisa is already happening in our hospitals anyway. Not only is this a poor argument to change law, but it is also untrue.
