Speaking tour of Australia and New Zealand – Part 3
I arrived in Australia on June 23, speaking in Melbourne, South Australia and then Tasmania.
On June 29 I left Australia and arrived in Auckland New Zealand to speak at a conference, organized by a local steering committee that was titled: Legalized Euthanasia: Do we need it?
The conference on Saturday, June 30 was very impressive with approximately 100 attendees from across New Zealand.
The conference had several excellent speakers including a member of the New Zealand parliament, Dr. Huhana Hickey, who spoke about euthanasia from a legal perspective as well as from a Maori (native) perspective, Russell Vickery, a disability leader, who spoke about Euthanasia and the disability community, John Kleinsman who spoke about euthanasia from a New Zealand and world perspective, and then myself who spoke about how legalizing euthanasia is a threat to vulnerable persons.
Russell Vickery who is a leader in the disability community in New Zealand and Internationally was also the MC for the day.
I was incredibly pleased with the quality of the presentations and the excellent questions that were asked by the participants during the Open Forum.
