The day after the Tasmanian Euthanasia & Assisted Suicide was defeated, Disability activist, author and editor of the ABC's Ramp Up website on disability, Stella Young shares her concerns about that bill and euthanasia in general.
As Lives Worth Living made similar observations in their submission to the Tasmanian Parliament. They also noted that not every person living with disability would agree. This does not diminish the argument - it only enhances it in as much as it is a voice that needs to be heard.
Here's the opening few paragraphs of the story. I have provided a link at the bottom to the story on the Ramp Up site because I want to encourage readers to also read the comments left by others.
Disability - a fate worse than death?
