So you don't think euthanasia is dangerous for the disabled? This might change your mind.
A man who has been a quadriplegic since he was 3 is the latest focus of right-to-die news in the US. For about 18 months Dan Crews, 27, of Antioch, Illinois, has demanded that his ventilator be removed.
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.
