NSW: Euthanasia puts lives at risk

18 December 2020


Members of the ‘left-wing movement’ in the NSW parliament are again pushing ahead with a bill to legalise euthanasia.

If this bill goes ahead, NSW will become known as the ‘Killing State’ having legalised Abortion and rejected Zoe’s Law.

Alex Greenwich MP announced last week that he will begin the process of drafting so-called “assisted dying laws” which is a euphemistic term for legalised killing.

Everyone in NSW must send a strong message to MPs that they cannot allow this proposal to go ahead as there is overwhelming anecdotal opposition to these laws within communities and indeed doctors, health practitioners and counsellors.

According to the Australian Medical Association,

“Euthanasia is the act of deliberately ending the life of a patient for the purpose of ending intolerable pain or suffering.”

Physician-assisted suicide (PAS) occurs “where the assistance of the medical practitioner is intentionally directed at enabling an individual to end his or her own life” and usually this involves the provision of a prescription.

“Moral opposition to both euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide has been a feature of both the Hippocratic and the Judeo-Christian tradition from earliest times. This is particularly striking in view of the commitment of both traditions to the relief of suffering and care of the dying,” said Greg Bondar, NSW State Director.

“The legalisation of euthanasia and assisted suicide by its very nature places the lives of those in NSW at risk.

“NSW MPs should recognise the reality that an ‘appropriate’ legal framework to kill people, or to assist them to kill themselves is impossible.”
