Life, not euthanasia (letter)by Brian HarrisNews Weekly
, May 24, 2008
Sir Edward "Weary" Dunlop, the great Australian surgeon, saved lives in the hell of the Japanese Changi prison in World War II.
One badly injured soldier begged Weary to kill him. Weary, however, operated and that man later became a successful businessman in England with a wife and family.
While there is life, there is hope.
When I am seriously ill or dying, give me the last rites of the church, not euthanasia advocates such as Rodney Syme and Philip Nitschke.Brian Harris,
