Euthanasia: we can live without it

A little on the lighter side…

After thwarting some fairly serious attempts to discredit me personally and HOPE by association in the days following the victory in the SA parliament, I couldn’t help but see the ‘lighter side’ of an attempted smear on the letters page of the local newspaper.

Common sense prevails in South Australia

Last evening (24th November) the South Australian Parliament’s upper house debated the latest euthanasia bill from Greens MLC, Mark Parnell.

At the State Election in March of this year changes in personnel in the upper house appeared to have turned that chamber decidedly pro-euthanasia.  However, last night common sense prevailed yet again as the bill was defeated at the second reading ‘on the voices’.

There is no way to safely kill people

Twists and turns: At the eleventh hour in the SA euthanasia debates the Health Minister the Hon John Hill MP has entered the fray today claiming that the Parnell/Key model of legislation is “flawed”, “clunky”, “bureaucratic” and difficult to implement.
