Posted March 13, 2020 06:15:00Humanist education degree (HE) holder Alyssa Williams said it was important for students to know about the human rights and ethics surrounding euthanasia, and that “we need to work to build a culture of compassion.”
“It’s an opportunity for us to educate people about the ethical issues that they have to contend with when they have an illness and that it’s an ethical decision for them to make,” she said.
“It helps them to be more accepting and more understanding of each other and of other people.”
We need a conversation around the ethics of euthanasia.
“She said there were many misconceptions about euthanases, with some believing it was against society’s morals.”
If you’re an Australian who has an illness, then there’s no difference between the two,” she told 7.30.
Ms Williams, who has two children and a husband and wife in Queensland, said there was a need to educate students about euthasising other humans, and the right to die.”
You can’t have an animal who is dying, so why are we taking away their life,” she explained.”
So I think it’s important that people understand what is really going on.
