EVIL PREVAILS WHEN GOOD MEN DO NOTHING!!!!!!!!!

On Thursday, in the state of Victoria, Australia the Senate members of our political system are wrapping up the debate about assisted suicide.

I just wonder if any of the Lower House members who have already passes the bill or the Senate members have even bothered to listen to expert advice from the “WORLD MEDICAL ASSOCIATION.” I just wonder if any have looked at statistics of the countries that have already passed assisted suicide bills such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Colombia, and Canada (Quebec since 2014, nationally as of June 2016). Physician-assisted suicide, excluding euthanasia, is legal in 5 US states (Oregon, Washington, Montana, Vermont, and California) and Switzerland.

We know that euthanasia is increasing in countries that have legalized it: an increase of 18 % in the Netherlands in 2011, and another 13% increase in 2012. Moreover, according to The Lancet, 23% of cases of euthanasia are not reported. ( Read more -see link below-courtesy of “LIVING WITH DIGNITY “).

Assisted suicide is wrong at many levels. God wants no part of death. He sent us His son Jesus Christ so that He could conquer death and this is not part of God’s plan. Did God not sent His Son to us to die on the cross?  Suffering unfortunately, is part of this life on earth but that’s exactly why Jesus came to us. If you have to endure pain then God will compensate you in the afterlife. GOD IS FOR SALVATION, politicians are after your approval and votes, they’re not interested in you getting to heaven.  Death without salvation is not perfect. Nothing imperfect shall enter heaven.

Think about the person pushing the button. Why should doctors be put in the predicament of assisting suicide when they don’t believe in it??? I couldn’t imagine how awful that would be. Assisted suicide is not only immoral but it affects the doers on a spiritual/personal level.

I fear for my children and their children’s children.

I personally have gone out to get petitions signed against euthanasia, written to politicians and you can too. It is not too late you can write to them to send your protest here’s the link…. https://www.aph.gov.au/senate/los

EUTHANASIA IS MORALLY UNACCEPTABLE, A CRIME, A GRAVE VIOLATION OF GOD’S LAW

There is a renewed push in Victoria and many other parts for euthanasia and assisted suicide to be legalised. In this latest push the term ”assisted dying” is being used to end life of a loved one.

It is not an act of dignity to support ”assisted dying” it is the opposite of care and represents abandonment of the sick and the suffering of older and dying persons.

We should be clear  that there is no safe way to kill people or to help them to their own suicide. For millennia, the church and civil society has understood such actions to be morally and ethically wrong.                                                            (Archbishop of Melb. Most Rev Denis Hart)

ONCE WE ALLOW THE STATE TO LEGISLATE ON WHO LIVES AND DIES, WE CROSS THE LINE, A VERY DANGEROUS LINE, A FUNDAMENTAL LINE ABOUT HOW SOCIETY WORKS, WHICH CAN EASILY LEAD TO ABUSE AND OVER APPLICATION OF THE LAW, IF IT WERE LEGISLATED.

The Victorian Government is seeking to introduce euthanasia and assisted suicide later this year. The proposed changes will impact everyone, not just those terminally ill. The proposals then, as now, would allow some people to be treated differently under the law. It would create a lower threshold of care and civil protection afforded to the sick, suffering and vulnerable.

Such legislation is usually presented as being limited only to terminal illness, only for those in the last weeks and months of life. However the evidence from other jurisdictions (NT- Australia- 1996 experiment, Belgium-2014).

Legally sanctioning euthanasia or assisted suicide would radically change health care and impact everyone – not just the doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other health professionals directly involved. It would ultimately harm us all.

Euthanasia always involves a second person and is therefore a public act with public consequences. One person assisting the death of another is a matter of significant public concern because it can lead to abuse, exploitation and erosion of care for vulnerable people. Euthanasia and assisted suicide can never be safe. Because those terminally ill (and others in the community) are vulnerable to powerful feelings of fear, depression, loneliness, not wanting to be a burden, and even to coercion from family members, no law can adequately protect them from euthanasia if it is available.

We need to care for those whose suffering is so serious that death seems more attractive than life. Love and compassion are shown by valuing their lives even if they struggle to do so themselves. Victorians deserve better than euthanasia and assisted suicide.  (Archbishop of Melb. Most Rev Denis Hart)
