When there is so much information out there one would have to be crazy not to hoard as much of it as possible, right? This is of course referring to the United States’ very own NSA (National Security Agency). The NSA seems to have a hoarding complex as well as no regard for the any person’s privacy on the internet, including U.S. citizens. Having an agency dedicated on collecting information on foreign citizens is bad for foreign relations; some countries have even started to take action. Having that same agency also spy on their own citizens is tremendously worse for domestic relations, protests and rallies have been organized to raise awareness and attempt to put a stop to these heinous acts of privacy invasion.

Introduction To assess WikiLeaks “completely” would be a mammoth task, trawling through every release and considering it in relation to public interest would take months. Similarly, by virtue of the gargantuan proportions of the information WikiLeaks handles, we might assume that it cannot all, be in the public interest. Public Interest, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Information and Human Rights Public interest is one of seven common defences to libel and slander as defined by George Lubega of Pinsent Masons. The Press Complaints Commission (PCC) specify it's implications with regard to 'Detecting or exposing crime and serious injury' and 'Preventing the public from being misled by an action or statement of an individual or organisation' which are particularly pertinent with regard to WikiLeaks.

Christopher Hood (2011) announces that, WikiLeaks “releases include nearly 80,000 documents about Afghan war, some 400,000 Iraq war documents, and diplomatic cables from 274 U.S. embassies around the world” (Hood, 2011). The gathered information is from anonymous news sources, news leaks, hackers, and whistleblowers.

Kaveny says, “…they have argued that PAS would be just the first step down a slippery slope” (1), which is very true because the faults that will come along with PAS will eventually cause the downfall of our health system. It will do that mainly because how could anyone trust a doctor that gives up so easily. With all the defects of the PAS movement exposed, it is safe to say that PAS should be illegal everywhere. It causes destruction of our health system by violating the Hippocratic Oath, letting innocent people die a preventable death, and the struggles with new diseases and outbreaks. PAS should not even be in debate; it should just be banned.
