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
