QLD Government’s Culture of Death a Growing Concern

In a move the Australian Christian Lobby is calling an attack on vulnerable Queenslanders the state Labor government today established a parliamentary inquiry to consider assisted suicide legislation. 

The inquiry follows a strong push from within the Labor party and campaigning from pro-euthanasia groups. 

The ACL’s state director Wendy Francis says, “The government’s culture of death is concerning. No sooner have they legalised the most progressive abortion legislation in Australia, the government now want to target another group of vulnerable people.”  

“We know from international experience that wherever assisted suicide has been legalised, vulnerable people die. Just this week, a Dutch doctor was charged after she slipped sleeping pills into a patient’s coffee and then asked the family to hold the struggling elderly woman down as she was euthanised.”  

“The recent federal government announcement of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety serves to highlight that there are already issues with the treatment of elderly people. Why would we want to complicate an already flawed system further?” 

“The government would do better to consider additional funding for palliative care services and aged care facilities,” commented Mrs Francis.
