A New South Wales state MP has launched an ePetition in the latest attempt to stop the passage of euthanasia laws in the state. Source: The Catholic Weekly.
Labor MLC Greg Donnelly, a well-known pro-life campaigner, has established the petition as a way for people to make their voices heard to all members of the NSW Legislative Council.
It states: “To the President and Members of the Legislative Council, the petitioners of New South Wales state that they are completely opposed to the passage of the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2021, in any form, which provides for state sanctioned/funded assisted suicide/euthanasia.
“A cornerstone of our legal system is that ALL human life has inherent value and must be treated with dignity and respect. The petitioners request that the House unanimously oppose the bill, in any form, and reject it.”
Mr Donnelly said it was vital as many people as possible sign the ePetition and help protect the vulnerable in our society.
“There are some very profound and existential matters playing out which go to the very heart and question of what our humanity is, what it means to be a human being and what does it mean to respect human life,” he said.
Sydney Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP has urged all to sign the petition and write to MPs opposing the introduction of the dangerous laws.
