Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk failed a leadership test today when the media asked her about yesterday’s dreadful Health Committee report recommending assisted suicide, the Australian Christian Lobby says.
Today’s high-level report on voluntary assisted dying is unwelcome at this extremely difficult time, according to the Australian Christian Lobby. The Health Committee made recommendations today for the Palaszczuk government-commissioned review on assisted suicide laws.
The Australian Christian Lobby is appalled at the comments attributed to independent MLC Mike Gaffney that he intends to press on with his assisted suicide campaign, despite the COVID-19 crisis.
The Australian Christian Lobby values and supports every human life, particularly at the end of life when research for cures and world’s best palliative care should be the priority.
The Australian Christian Lobby encourages hope and purpose, even in the final chapter of people’s lives so that despondent Tasmanians would not choose to prematurely end their own lives.
The Australian Christian Lobby encourages hope and purpose, even in the final chapter of people’s lives so that despondent South Australians would not choose to prematurely end their own lives.
Tasmania’s laws recognise that human lives have unique and infinite value, the Australian Christian Lobby says, observing that a compassionate society is measured by its care for the sick and dying, enhancing their quality of life.
The Australian Christian Lobby has denounced the Western Australian government’s euthanasia laws as the most dangerous and unsafe in the world, with fewer protections than legislation recently passed in Victoria. Doctors will be allowed to raise Voluntary Assisted Dying ('VAD') with patients, and patients can take the poison without any supervision, which even controversial legislation in the Netherlands does not allow.
The Australian Christian Lobby has hit back at calls by the Ministerial Advisory Panel and Go Gentle to reject any amendments to the euthanasia bill in the state’s Legislative Council, branding the calls as ‘the height of arrogance’.
The Australian Christian Lobby has written an open letter to Members of the Legislative Council as the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2019 approaches a critical vote, urging them to respect the conscience of doctors, and family and kinship impacts of poorly-drafted VAD laws.
