Anyone who reads this blog or follows the international euthanasia/assisted debate should be familiar with Liz Carr – whose website describes her as an actor, comedian, presenter, and activist. The list is too short – she’s also a documentary film maker and a playwright. She’s in Australia right now, with her musical “Assisted Suicide – The Musical.”
While in Australia, she’s doing her best to promote the perspective of disabled people like herself who oppose legalized assisted suicide for nonreligious reasons. Below is a close-captioned video of Liz speaking to the Victoria Parliament on March 22nd, 2017. It is over 30 minutes long and worth listening to each and every minute. She doesn’t waste a word.
Liz is also hitting the media – talking about her musical and the underrepresented disability perspective on assisted suicide and euthanasia. The following is a clip from an Australian morning news show. The closed captioning on this video is of a lower quality than in the previous one, but should allow readers to follow – if you can read really fast.
