Andrews Government signs its own death wish

Right to Life Australia media release

7 December 2016

The President of Right to Life Australia Ms Margaret Tighe said today that “in signing the death warrant of future victims of the Andrews’ government euthanasia bill, Daniel Andrews may well have been unwittingly signing the death warrant of his own government.”

Ms Tighe said, “In 2010 John Brumby lost office because of the very effective marginal seat campaign run by Right to Life Australia, based on the recorded votes of those MPs who voted for the Abortion Till Birth legislation - the Abortion Law Reform Act 2008. In the past Brumby was reliant on the support of IND Craig Ingram (Gippsland East) who blamed Right to Life Australia for the loss of his seat.”

Ms Tighe continued, “Apparently the Andrews Government has decided to embrace the patient killing that has escalated in those few places in the world that it is allowed e.g. Holland and Belgium etc. preferring to ignore the highly significant and overwhelming defeat of the assisted dying bill in the House of Commons (UK) last year and prior to that in the Scottish Parliament.”

Vol Assisted Dying Bill discussion paper The Vic Andrews Govt has released a Discussion paper on its proposed Euthanasia Bill asking Victorians to help design the death bill! Prof Brian Owler, Chair-Ministerial Advisory Panel stated “… the panel will not consider feedback that expresses an opinion for or against assisted dying.  The panel asks for "feedback based on people's" expertise and experience to provide perspectives on the access, safeguards and practical considerations in creating a compassionate and safe assisted dying framework". Obviously the views of those "experienced" in the detail of killing patients are being sought but those who oppose the killing are excluded.  Express your opposition to the design of the killing programme! It is the next step in the deadly process. Send an email to the Panel by Mon 10 April 2017 to <Assisteddying.frameworkresponses@dhhs.vic.gov.au>    Contact your MP and tell him/her you oppose the design of a bill which kills Victorians.  Email us for contact details.
