In a few weeks Victorian MPs will be asked to vote on a Government bill that would legalise assisted suicide and euthanasia in Victoria.
Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia are dangerous, thoroughly bad ideas that put society’s most vulnerable at risk.
Euthanasia distorts the relationship between doctors and patients.
If we were to legalise assisted suicide & euthanasia it would mean needing to re-train doctors from being healers to life takers.
The most extraordinary thing about this debate is the way the Andrews Government tried so hard during the election campaign to convince people they wouldn’t introduce this legislation.
The Labor Party said it had “no plans” to introduce euthanasia legislation if they were elected.
Now here we are, 18 months out from an election and the Labor Party wants to legalise assisted suicide and euthanasia, which it is calling 'assisted dying'.
