On the way to the polls

The 2018 Tasmanian state election will be held on 3 March 2018 and will elect all 25 members of the Tasmanian lower house, the House of Assembly.

The current Liberal government, led by Premier of Tasmania Will Hodgman is seeking re-election whilst Tasmanian Labor is hoping to be elected as the next government.

So much is at stake this election. The party who wins government will determine incredibly important issues such as what your children will be taught in schools, the value our State puts on life issues such as euthanasia and the rights of preborn babies.

This election page has been prepared to inform you of the party platforms and the candidates views on many issues.  We hope it is useful.

Tell TAS Labor, “Don’t Force Euthanasia On Anyone!”

Current petition for this issue

Tell TAS Labor, “Don’t force euthanasia on anyone!”

For decades the Australian Labor Party has granted its MPs a conscience vote on life and death issues.

When it comes to issues like euthanasia and abortion, it is critically important that members of parliament are allowed to vote according to their conscience rather than being forced to tow the party line.

But now the Tasmanian Labor Party platform dictates that MPs and candidates must support legalising euthanasia and not exercise freedom.

This is a dangerous policy that will inevitably lead to some of our most vulnerable citizens feeling pressured to end their life.

Please take a moment, read the petition, and add your signature to implore Labor to give back MPs the freedom to vote with their conscience on such important matters of life.
