The announcement today by NSW MP Alex Greenwich declaring that he will introduce a euthanasia and assisted suicide bill into NSW parliament is another step toward making NSW a ‘killing state’.
Euthanasia is not a solution. Euthanasia is not healthcare. Euthanasia is not palliative care. The term Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD) is a misnomer and sends the wrong message to everyone. Pro-euthanasia organisations are feeding misinformation to our MPs.
“The concession by Sydney MP Alex Greenwich’s voluntary assisted dying bill to permit religious-run hospitals and aged care homes to refuse to offer it on their premises in a bid to soften the Catholic Church’s staunch opposition to the laws is a fake olive branch,” said Greg Bondar, media spokesman for FamilyVoice Australia.
FamilyVoice is encouraging all NSW mothers, fathers, parents, and children of grandparents to send a quick message our MPs in both houses of the NSW parliament urging them to reject any proposals to implement euthanasia.
As Australians we are committed to preventing suicide but promote euthanasia which is just ‘legalised’ killing.
