Michael Cook | Dec 8 2010 | comment

Michael Cook | Nov 19 2010 | comment  
One of the most eloquent voices on euthanasia in Australia is Dr Erik Leipoldt, a quadriplegic who is a lecturer at the Centre for Research into Disability and Society at Curtin University of Technology, in Western Australia. Alarmed at the prospect of legalized euthanasia, Dr Leipoldt has written a very persuasive essay in Australian Policy Online arguing that legalization would hurt the disabled most.
