Catholic Health Australia (CHA) and its members are deeply concerned that Senator David Leyonhjelm’s proposed “Restoring Territory Rights (Assisted Suicide Legislation) Bill 2015” serves to distract from the shameful reality of inadequate access to palliative and End of Life care in this country, contributing to a widespread fear of death and dying. Legislating for euthanasia and assisted suicide would have dangerous unintended consequences for our vulnerable Australians including Indigenous, ethnic, disabled, and our elderly, and has been consistently opposed by national and international medical experts.
