Right to Die?

A stunning piece appeared in the Kapiti Independent News today. Former Presbyterian Moderator John Murray wrote it and while his own view is unambiguous, he picks up the terrible irony of a hearing in a court used to judging alleged criminals rather than sensing the terrible truth as it affects a clearly innocent woman.

As last Monday approached I felt that all that would be said in the three or four days would not reveal anything that we did not already know. John, who sat in the public gallery, seems to have found that. But even that recital of what we have heard before has obviously moved him.   

He pleads that we engage seriously in the kind of informed debate that our parliamentarians are refusing to have on our behalf. I'm for that...
