Do we ever have the right to take the life of another person? This was the complex discussion topic that Year 11 student Johanna Cameron facilitated at this week’s Senior Round Square session.

Differing perspectives around the death penalty, euthanasia, police shootings and engaging our soldiers in warfare were discussed, resulting in some robust debate and thoughtful insights being offered by the students. One interesting question Johanna posed was “should prisoners who are sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole be given the option of voluntary euthanasia?”

Meetings are held every Thursday lunchtime in the Don Wing Lecture Theatre and all interested students are welcome to attend.
