Love at Home, Support from the Society, to Prevent Real Tragedy

What could be tougher than having one disability? Having several. And being the lifelong carer parent of someone in this position is possibly the most emotionally, physically and psychologically demanding role on the planet.

Here is an eloquent, beautifully shot multimedia presentation about the bond between mother and son, that starkly details the dangers that people with disabilities and their families would face if euthanasia were available as an option anywhere in Australia, especially in a small city like Canberra.

I hope, along with this family, that the new National Disability Insurance Scheme will in fact provide protection to the vulnerable, parents and their children especially, in situations like these. The reality is likely to be a system in which there is inevitably some holes or inconsistencies. May euthanasia never be proposed as a “solution” to such failures should they arise
