Media release: Euthanasia and the role of Parliament
Thursday, June 28, 2018

Christian advocacy group FamilyVoice Australia has rejected a parliamentary proposal that would allow euthanasia in the Northern Territory.

“The Territories are formed by the Commonwealth and therefore federal Parliament must exercise a supervisory responsibility over them,” said FamilyVoice SA/NT Director David d’Lima.

“And as the Northern Territory has only one House of Parliament, the due diligence and safeguard provided by federal oversight is all the more important.

“The highly problematic 1995 euthanasia law in the Territory led to vulnerable and depressed people seeking to end their lives,” he said.

“The Commonwealth must not allow a revival of that shoddy enactment.”
