Censored Kanck Speech to be listed

Censored Kanck Speech to be listed

To read her speech, click HERE

Following the unprecedented behaviour of the SA Parliament today (31st Aug) in passing motions to suppress the speech made by SA MLC Sandra Kanck on 30th Aug, Exit has decided to list the presentation in its entirety on this website.

The Exit website is hosted in New Zealand and is not subject to the provisions of the Suicide Related Materials Act 2005.

Exit has taken this step because it believes that by suppressing the content of the speech, the SA parliament has made it impossible for the public to judge the responsibility of the Kanck presentation.

Exit director Dr Philip Nitschke said, "She will be damned without any chance to defend herself. Her speech was considered and balanced, and explained in detail the problems caused by the Federal government's attempt to suppress end of life information".

The speech will be listed from midday, 1st Sept 2006
