Article on euthanasia in Singapore

On January 11, Wake Up Singapore published an article called “Legalising Euthanasia in Singapore – Mercy Killing or Playing God?” The article was originally brought by Must Share Good Things, but it seems to have disappeared from that website.

The article is an opinion article that starts with the question if euthanasia is a better suited way to cope with nearing death than suicide. Statistics from the Samaritans of Singapore proved a 13% increase in suicides in 2020 for people with terminal illness.

The author concludes that euthanasia should be legalised in Singapore as a last resort to relieve the crippling pain.
