Groups seek to join euthanasia case

first_imgNZ Herald 21 April 2015The Human Rights Commission and two other groups want to join a legal challenge by a terminally ill woman seeking the right for a doctor to help her die without criminal prosecution.Lecretia Seales, 41, is dying from brain cancer and believes it’s a “fundamental human right” to be able to choose to end her life with medical assistance, if she wants to, before her suffering becomes intolerable.In a legal first in New Zealand, the senior legal and policy adviser at the Law Commission filed a statement of claim in the High Court seeking a ruling to determine whether her GP could lawfully administer a lethal dose of drugs.Assisting suicide is a crime punishable by up to 14 years in prison but Ms Seales’ case relies on the provisions in the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act that protect the rights to not be deprived of life or subjected to cruel treatment.If successful, the bid would allow the doctor to euthanise Ms Seales because of her specific circumstances and would not set a precedent. But a favourable High Court ruling would allow others to follow suit and potentially send a signal to Parliament for further law reform.The case, Seales v the Attorney-General, has been set down for a one-week hearing in the High Court at Wellington next month.But three other parties – the Human Rights Commission, the Voluntary Euthanasia Society of New Zealand and the Care Alliance Trust – are seeking to join the case and have their say in court.Voluntary Euthanasia supports Ms Seales’ position, while the Care Alliance is opposed to assisted suicide and euthanasia.Asked whether the Human Rights Commission supported or opposed Ms Seales’ bid, a spokeswoman said the case raised important human rights issues with implications for many people.“We believe it is important the court has the benefit of an independent perspective on human rights principles and the legal framework which applies in cases like this.”http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11435738last_img read more

Dr. Fauci, White House COVID-19 task officials testify on Capitol Hill

first_imgdrnadig/iStockBy JOHN PARKINSON and ANNE FLAHERTY, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — As the novel coronavirus continues to spread across the United States, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, is set to testify on Capitol Hill Friday. His appearance comes amid mounting scrutiny into his strained relationship with President Donald Trump.Fauci, who last testified before Congress on June 30, will be joined during a hybrid in-person/remote hearing by two other leading officials from the White House Coronavirus Task Force: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s director, Dr. Robert Redfield, and the assistant secretary for health at the Department of Health and Human Services, Adm. Brett Giroir.The hearing comes as the number of new COVID-19 cases keep appearing at a worrisome pace. Cases rose above 60,000 on Wednesday — the highest daily tally in more than two months — when more than 1,400 Americans died from the virus.Democrats say they intend to examine the “urgent need for a national comprehensive plan” to address the pandemic, according to a news release sent by the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, which is chaired by House Majority Whip James Clyburn.With public support for his response to the pandemic sinking, Trump has recently worked to discredit Fauci, insisting he’s “made mistakes” throughout the crisis. Nevertheless, the president insists he gets along fine with Fauci and likes him personally.Following weeks of questions about their relationship, Fauci joined Trump Thursday at the American Red Cross headquarters — the first time they met in person since June 2 — for a roundtable to raise awareness of the importance of donating plasma.“Everybody is doing a good job. Everybody is working very hard,” Trump said.“When we talk about what is going on in this country and the challenge we’re facing, we often say that it is something where we are all in it together, and we all have to pull together,” Fauci said.The hearing will be the first since the CDC released new guidelines on schools. Earlier this month, the White House blocked Redfield from testifying in the House, with a senior administration official telling reporters on condition of anonymity: “We need our doctors focused on the pandemic response.”Since then, the CDC has revised its guidelines on schools, which prioritize the argument that kids should return to the classroom because of mental health needs and the reduced likelihood of getting seriously ill. It’s likely lawmakers will demand to know if Redfield was pressured politically to refocus the guidelines.Research shows kids are significantly less likely to get seriously ill from the novel coronavirus, although the risk isn’t zero and the concern is that they can infect others without ever exhibiting symptoms. And while there is some research that younger children could be less infectious than teens and adults, those findings are typically in countries with lower transmission rates than the U.S.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
