Q3 - Euthanasia

Would you vote against any bill that would legalise euthanasia or physician assisted suicide?


Party Reply Score
Australian Labor Party

The Platform of the Australian Labor Party (Victorian Branch) states clearly that these are matters for the conscience of individual Labor Members of Parliament.
Liberal-National Party

A Liberal-Nationals Coalition government would not bring or support the bringing of legislation on euthanasia to the Parliament.   

Any such proposals would be a matter for individual backbench MPs.

Democratic Labor Party

Yes, definitely.  This question relates to clause 12b of the DLP Objectives, which states, “the DLP shall uphold the principles of liberty intended to affirm the sacredness of human life, from its inception until natural death as the fundamental basis for all human rights.”

Christian Democratic Party

Yes, definitely.

Family First Party

Yes, definitely.

The Greens

The Greens support the right of people in sound mind, dying from an incurable disease, when pain relief is not working for them, to be able to seek assistance to die.  The Greens would support any attempt to bring in a conscience vote on euthanasia.

We will request that the government send a reference to the Law Reform Commission consult with the community on this important issue and make recommendations.

Many of the MPs who rejected Colleen Hartland's Bill said that they support dying with dignity in principle, and they might have voted differently had the legislation been the result of a thorough investigation and consultation.  This is why we wish to refer the matter to the Victorian Law Reform Commission.

Ms Hartland's legislation was supported by a broad range of community members, including Christians.

Australian Sex Party

The Australian Sex Party believes people have the right to complete control over their lives.  We believe that voluntary euthanasia should be decriminalised and the best possible protocols should be established.  Extensive polling has also demonstrated the overwhelming majority of the Australian community supports voluntary euthanasia.
