 Channel 4 - Last Rights
At a time when parliament was primarily a club for the rich and privileged who attained their position through knowing the right people, the Chartists called for annual General Elections, in which all adult males could vote, by a secret ballot regardless of their economic circumstances.
The rights of young people are specifically set out in another UN document – the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989).
The main principles of this convention are that children have a right to survival, development, protection from harmful influences and, crucially, as far as citizenship goes, the right to participation.

 CNN.com - Vatican source: Pope given last rites - Mar 31, 2005
In the Catholic Church, the last rites began as a ritual of healing, but the emphasis shifted over time to forgiving the sins of a dying person as preparation for going to heaven.
The church has tried to return to the original meaning of the sacrament by emphasizing that it is not only for those who are close to death but also for anyone who is ill, by calling it the Anointing of the Sick or the Sacrament of Anointing.
Last rites -- also known as the sacrament of the sick or extreme unction -- are commonly given to people who are seriously ill as well.

They started last year with 3 mini DV cameras and learnt as they went on that it was shot quicker, looked better, cut easier and was actually cheaper to have one big old SP.
I was actually joking with the producer during this last shoot in Guate that I must look like some guy who has gone a little overboard with a new "hobby" instead of what many consider "professional" equipment.
Its funny how put a mic in front of someone and they will tense up, but find the blind spot somewhere in their peripheral vision between the fight and flight reflex and move in it with the big camera and they forget you are there.

 Last Rights for Terri
When dealing with a woman who has been unable to speak or walk for more than a decade, we cannot apply the usual criteria; we are compelled to act as Terri's eyes and her mouth and her legs and give life to desires we can only guess at.
I have never believed that a husband or wife (or "life partner") should have the right to determine whether their loved one lives or dies.
The law grants these rights as a means of balancing the interests of society against those of an individual.

Also, naturally, refusal to “do the right thing”, and assist in terminating those whose “quality of life” failed to meet societal norms, would be considered “abandonment”, “inappropriate intervention”, or “abuse” and would likely be met with other sanctions from medical boards and hospital ethics committees.
So, I do not see myself remaining a neurologist when the boom is lowered on the Boomers, even though I have been repeatedly informed that no neurologist would ever, ever, EVER be required to violate his or her conscience.
Right now we are all just “listening” to one another.

One difference is that last year, for the first time, the phrase "sexual orientation" made it into a UN document, a resolution on extra-judicial, summary, and arbitrary executions, so that if you do a search [of the phrase] on the UN site the resolution will turn up.
It would mean that a major, core body of the human rights system has had to discuss the issue [of sexual orientation and human rights].

 LAST RIGHTS:
But in the California study, three-fourths of the physicians said they would refuse to disconnect a tube supplying food and water to someone in an apparently irreversible coma, and one-third would not unplug a breathing machine - even when a patient's advance directive explicitly forbade life-sustaining treatment in that situation.
The discussion also lets you find out ahead of time whether your physician and your agent would be willing to go along with your wishes, particularly in the situations where doctors as well as proxies often hesitate to act such as unplugging a life-support machine or cutting off artificial feeding.
If your doctor or agent questions your right to refuse any treatments, you might ask him or her to call Choice in Dying (212- 366-540) or to check with an attorney who knows the law no advance directives but doesn't work for a hospital.
