In South Australia there is an almost constant stream of proposed legislation aimed at legalising euthanasia.
The latest Bill, by ALP MP Steph Key, is aimed at providing doctors with a 'defence'...
Ros Phillips, of Family Voice, says:
“Earlier bills have set up a scheme for legalised euthanasia. But Steph Key’s bill sets out a series of defences for doctors who kill their patients, or who actively counsel and aid them to commit suicide. The law prohibiting murder is fundamental to a peaceful society in which everyone is protected. Steph Key’s bill would remove that protection. It would allow a doctor to escape any penalty by claiming that the doctor had given a patient a lethal dose of drugs because the patient found life intolerable and expressly requested to be killed.”
Now euthanasia advocate Philip Nitschke is planning to build a euthanasia clinic in South Australia and is looking for a 'suitable' location.
The Advertiser has an article on this and is running a poll: Euthanasia advocate Philip Nitschke eyes death clinic for Adelaide.
The question: Should a euthanasia clinic be built in Adelaide?
