:: Care not Killing
::  what's all the fuss about? | the issues in brief

  • Euthanasia devalues human life, putting pressure on the vulnerable to ‘do the right thing’ so they are not an inconvenience.
  • Federal Greens leader Bob Brown has introduced a bill into the Senate to return to the Territories the ability to legislate on the issue of euthanasia.
  • The bill would overturn a 1997 bill – the ‘Andrews’ amendment’ – which itself overturned the Northern Territory’s short-lived Rights of the Terminally Ill [voluntary euthanasia] Act.
  • MPs have been granted a conscience vote.
  • Sign the petition against euthanasia.

For the last 10+ years, parliaments across Australia have sent euthanasia activists the clear and easily-understood message that legalised ‘voluntary’ euthanasia can never be made safe.

As recently as September 2010, Upper House Members in Western Australia’s parliament rejected the bill of Greens member Robin Chapple to legalise euthanasia in that state. This follows the rejection of earlier Greens’ supported euthanasia bills in Tasmania and South Australia in 2009, and Victoria in 2008.

The considered message of Australia’s parliaments against legalising euthanasia has been unambiguous, but clearly, the activists have refused to listen. We need to send the Senate a petition against euthanasia so big that the issue of euthanasia will finally be laid to rest!

We ask that you do the following things:

  • Action 1: sign the petition to inform Senators that legalising voluntary euthanasia would set a dangerous precedent for devaluing human life;
  • Action 2: send a ‘pollie mail’ to let our federal elected representatives know that they have a responsibility to protect the vulnerable from euthanasia.
  • Action 3: alert your friends, family and colleagues to the ‘Care not Killing’ campaign.
  • Action 4: learn more about euthanasia + get involved in the debate.
