Voluntary euthanasia has been the focus of great controversy in recent years, both in
New Zealand and elsewhere. Advocates of voluntary euthanasia maintain that terminally
ill eo le have a right to be assisted to die, es ecially if they are suffering signi cant
and ongoing pain, and that this right ought to be legally recognized. Critics of voluntary
euthanasia, by contrast, argue that the current legal prohibition against killing human beings
ought to be maintained. This is because human life is precious and voluntary euthanasia
is likely to have many undesirable consequences, including compromising the professional
roles of health care providers, especially doctors.
This forum will explore the ethical, medical, legal, social and spiritual issues at the heart of
the debate over the legalization of voluntary euthanasia. It will include contributions from a
range of disciplinary and ethical perspectives, and an opportunity for discussion.

Flag flying high
World Cup pride
By LAUREN PRIESTLEY
Historic: The 1894 flagpole that is
flying our flag for the Rugby World Cup.

An 1894 flagpole is proudly flying
the New Zealand flag on Wellington s
shores during the Rugby World Cup.
The historic flagpole was originally
installed on the Shed 7 building, now
the Wharf Offices Apartments.
It was removed after the 1931
The flagpole now graces the Wel-
lington waterfront at Frank Kitts
Park in a Wellington Waterfront
Wellington Waterfront property
manager Allan Brown said the World
Cup had encouraged the organis-
ation to fly the New Zealand flag
We certainly felt the World Cup
brought on a need for flags, he said.
It s the largest one down there,
bigger than the other countries flags
around the corner.
That s what boys do to show off,
isn t it?
Mr Brown said the flagpole would
remain on the waterfront for as long
as it stands.
He said it had survived for more
than 100 years so it was likely it
would last just as long again.
The public response had been posi-
tive, Mr Brown said.
People like it. I like it. It s fabu-
lous. We should fly more flags.
Victoria University history stud-
ent Shane Mahy said it was a cool
idea. It s really interesting.
Hopefully they have a plaque or
something telling people how old it
is. It d be cool to see the oldest flag
flying from the pole -- that d be
The flagpole has been extended
and reworked to include a new steel
base. Wellington Waterfront has also
put a display in its offices giving
people information about the history
of the flagpole.

cil chief executive Gar-
