In response to my 8th July email to all the Senate and HOR members, I have recieved a response from the Deputy Minister for Health,Fiona Nash. As you can see, she is also responding on behalf of Kevin Andrews, who has the honour of reversing the Dying with Dignity bill some years ago in NT. She has put the Governments position. Have a read, and I would be interested in your thoughts. To me this letter is insulting and scary in terms of implications for a free and bipartisan debate followed by a conscience vote on the DiNatale Dying with Dignity bill. The last 2 sentences in fact make no sense at all in saying “people should be able to choose the extent of active medical treatment they receive. As such the Aust Govt does not support legalising voluntary euthanasia at the Federal level.” I would love her to look me in the eye and say she and the Australian Government thinks if it comes to it I should suffer intolerably! It should be a call to each of us insist that Tony Abbott responds to my call for 1/ Making comment on the petition and 2/ Supporting a conscience vote. Letters like this show complete disregard for transparency and the will of 80% of Australians. Feel free to contact your local member or the Prime Minister on my behalf. I am always up for a mtg just can’t get one.
