The 19th Ordinary Meeting of the 165th Session of the Literific took place on the 20th of March in the Senate Room.

Vincent Wooding, Jack Thompson and Naomh Gibson spoke in proposition. Wooding argued that it is unfair to trust a person to do things within society but not allow them the ability to choose how they die. Thompson explained active and passive euthanasia to the House and that dying is a phase. He said that doctors have become good at extending the dying phase which is not in the best interests of the patient. Gibson question how learned the proposition were. Instead of worrying about the required model she asked the House to concentrate on the right to control the last part of your life when so much is out of your hands.

Sammy Wade, Nathan Cantley and Nathan Anderson opposed the motion. Wade argued that it would undermine the basic function of the legal and health authorities which exist to protect life. Cantley said that society is confused about the right to die, that there are no guidelines and no framework for us to be able to support it. Anderson said that everyone has their own perspectives on it but that he believed vulnerable people should be given the best possible care as opposed to the right to die.

The floor debate ensued, summaries were heard and after a vote the motion passed.

The 7th Ordinary Meeting of the 165th Session of the Literific took place on the 14th of November in the Canada Room (boo Canada).

Julia Andrade-Rocha, Vincent Wooding and Andrew Carruthers spoke for proposition. Ms Andrade-Rocha felt that the US is pushing people away by spying on them and that no one is taking it seriously anymore. Wooding listed all that was wrong with America. ALL. He told the House that the US is still in the 20th century as far as civil rights go. Mr Carruthers explained that although the US has soft power and the substance has changed, that the US remains in the Cold War mentality of the 20th Century.

Dr Stefan Andreasson, Cormac Manning (UCC) any Mr Tyler McNally opposed the motion. Dr Andreasson paised the US on its continuity and on its formidable influence which is seen through mass immigration, unrivalled military capacity and social media. Mr Manning talked about America’s power in trade and politics and how these two factors are recognized worldwide showing its international power. Mr McNally told the House that he didn’t just hate America but if fact hated the whole world, that the US may be backwards politically but so are all other countries.

The debate then went to the floor.
Both sides summarised and we went to a vote. The motion was defeated.
