Andrew Denton has once again, completely hit it out of the park with an incredible article about assisted dying, which is written in collaboration with his new podcast, ‘Better Off Dead’.
“In Belgium and the Netherlands, where euthanasia has been legal for more than a decade, it isn’t happening. You won’t find credible evidence of vulnerable people being coerced to die in the official records. You won’t find streams of angry relatives demanding to know why granny was killed. You won’t find politicians pushing to change the laws because of reports of granny-killing.And you won’t find the elderly in these countries complaining either. I know, because I asked them.”

“Every week, two Australians over the age of 80 take their lives. The most common method? Hanging.It is these grannies who deserve protection from our politicians.
When are they going to act?”
