Euthanasia advocate leaving NZ
Thu, 26 Apr 2012 12:22p.m.
A Dunedin scientist convicted for assisting the suicide of his mother, who was dying from cancer, is flying home to South Africa on Sunday.
But before he goes he will speak out for euthanasia.
Sean Davison has been freed from five months' house arrest, and is taking part in a debate on euthanasia tonight at the University Of Otago.
Davison's mother was terminally ill with cancer when she died in 2006.

I agree that people with a terminal illness should have a choice about when to end their lives. What I don't agree with is that they ask someone else to end their lives for them and get other people involved in their choice.
If people want to end their lives they should end it themselves -it's called suicide.
I agree with the law -if you decide to take up the request to end someone's else's life it's murder.
