Euthanasia defeat in Senate calls for congratulations

The Australian Christian Lobby has thanked all the senators who voted to preserve the dignity of life in tonight’s euthanasia vote. 

Martyn Iles, managing director of the ACL said, “It is great to hear that the senate has upheld the dignity of life for all Australians.

“We know from international experiences that euthanasia is a slippery slope which leads to cases like in Belgium recently where a nine-year-old with a brain tumour and an eleven-year-old with cystic fibrosis were euthanised. 

“The inherent value of every life must continue to be maintained.  Australia must not become the kind of society where some lives where considered worthier of life than others.” 

The Australian Christian Lobby is optimistic that this decision in favour of life will positively influence the state debates on this issue.
