Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2021
The Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2021 is the most heinous piece of legislation introduced before this Parliament.
The proponents of the Bill have attempted to define the debate as one of progressive and compassionate ideas. However, the truth is, this legislation and the arguments for its introduction are regressive and moves the priority for care to one of death.
The debate must be framed for what it truly involves – a failure of public policy and human rights, and a desperate attempt to resolve this failure through what seems to be the only viable alternative to suffering.
