Last Wednesday (24th May 2017) the Tasmanian Parliament debated the latest assisted suicide and euthanasia bill to come before an Australian Parliament.
The final vote saw the bill, euphemistically entitled the ‘Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2016, defeated by a vote of two to one (16 votes to 8) in the Legislative Assembly.

I.  INTRODUCTION

I am an attorney in Washington State where assisted suicide is legal. Our law is based on a similar law in Oregon. Both laws are similar to HB 160, which seeks to legalize assisted suicide and euthanasia in Delaware.

HB 160 is stacked against the individual and a recipe for elder abuse. If enacted, it will apply to people with years or decades to live.  I urge you to reject this measure.

I. INTRODUCTION

I am an attorney in Washington State where assisted suicide is legal. [1] Our law is based on a similar law in Oregon. Both laws are similar to the initiated measure, which seeks to legalize assisted suicide and euthanasia in South Dakota.[2]

The initiated measure is sold as a promotion of patient choice and control. The measure is instead stacked against the patient and a recipe for elder abuse.

If enacted, the measure will apply to people with years or decades to live. People with years or decades to live will be encouraged to throw away their lives. I urge you to reject this  measure.
