Prof Raymond Tallis, the chairman of Healthcare Professionals for Assisted Dying, a 1,000-strong group of doctors and nurses, backed Ashton. "It's totally appropriate that they should have the assistance of physicians if they have intolerable symptoms. It's very much the humane response to human suffering," said Tallis, an ex-professor of geriatric medicine at Manchester University.
Well my offer to give a party vote to Labour hasn't lasted long. On David Cunliffe's mooting of changing the burden of proof in rape cases on a Labour win, that is, that every person charged with rape no longer must be proven guilty, but must instead prove they had consent, I would be voting for a basic individual right - euthanasia - at the expense of the very foundation of a free Western society, for once you take away innocent until proven guilty, there's no free West left anymore.
Note the burden of proof already is reversed in tax cases to run the tax surveillance state, so there is no free West, but extending that to criminal jurisdictions such as rape is *the* end. Mind you I had foretold in this earlier post how identity politics and Marxist feminism would lead to this.
