Professor Jan Bernheim to speak throughout NZ

02 May 2017 12:06 PM | Philip Patston (Administrator)
The Voluntary Euthanasia Society of NZ has organised a number of public meetings around the country between 27 May and 17 June featuring Jan Bernheim, an emeritus professor of medicine at the Free University of Brussels. Prof Bernheim studies ethics and quality of life. He believes that voluntary euthanasia is “part of a philosophy of taking control of one’s own existence and improving the objective conditions for happiness. There is an arrow of evolution that goes toward ever more reducing of suffering and maximizing of enjoyment.” (The New Yorker, June 2015)
