Dan Andrews Proven Wrong

Euthanasia deaths in Victoria under the Euthanasia Act passed in 2017 are 10 times greater than Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews predicted! 

The latest Victorian Euthanasia Figures (January to June 2020) reveal that 124 Victorians were either executed by doctors or were victims of doctor assisted suicides in just the first year of Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews' Euthanasia Act.  When Premier Andrews was debating the “Bill to Kill” he stated maybe 12 Victorians would die under his bill in its first year of operation.  

The Victorian government's 'Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board Report of operations January–June 2020' is both frightening and confronting.

As the months pass, more and more Victorian people are either being executed by doctors or are falling victim to doctor assisted suicides.

Tragically Mr Andrews has been proven wrong. Even twelve deaths would have been twelve too many. The numbers being 10 times his prediction is cause for deep sorrow. Dishonest or not, Mr. Andrews is now publically revealed as having misled Victorians to get his death dealing bill passed. The big numbers can numb us to the grim reality!
We need to focus on the one death of one person under his Euthanasia Act. 

One person being executed by a doctor is a total horror.

Simply think of one doctor looking at one patient and deciding that the patient is better off dead. A doctor never kills a patient unless the doctor acting as “judge” decides the patient would be “better off dead” and so be a candidate for execution. Having made that decision the doctor then executes the patient.  That is the grim reality of Mr. Andrews’ Euthanasia Act.

Until Mr. Andrews’ Euthansia Act legalised doctors to prescribe poison for patients, all assisted suicides in Victoria were serious crimes.
Doctors may now prescribe poison for patients who take the poison to kill themselves in what is an act of doctor assisted suicide.
Victoria valiantly tries to reduce the number of suicides. All assisted suicides are still serious crimes, except for Mr. Andrews’ doctor assisted suicides.
Now is the time to protest one assisted suicide by one patient using poison prescribed by one doctor. Then we can protest the executions of many patients.  The legalisation of doctor assisted suicide leaves a patient vulnerable to elder abuse, coercion or unreasonable fears stoked by horror stories in the media about dreadful deaths.

Let’s get the grim facts on the executions and the doctor assisted suicides out to all Victorians.
