Stub­born Kev

NT News - - OPINION -

IT is un­sur­pris­ing that Kevin An­drews has not changed his mind about ve­to­ing the NT vol­un­tary eu­thana­sia law (NT News, November 10).

Those whose views on the sub­ject stem from faith rather than fact can jus­tify in their mind any suf­fer­ing.

In­deed some even see merit in it.

In the 20 years since the Fed­eral Par­lia­ment over­turned the Rights of the Ter­mi­nally Ill Act, there have been hun­dreds of un­nec­es­sar­ily trau­matic deaths of peo­ple who would have used that law had it re­mained in place, and they con­tinue.

That cer­tainly does not seem to cause Mr An­drews to lose any sleep and he need not bother about an elec­toral back­lash as he’s not ac­count­able to Ter­ri­tory vot­ers. Marshall Per­ron, QLD
