Eu­thana­sia tip­ping point

The Weekend Australian - - COMMENTARY -

How I hope for­mer AMA pres­i­dent Brian Owler’s words may tip some un­de­cided politi­cians into sup­port for as­sisted dy­ing leg­is­la­tion. Re­li­gious op­po­si­tion has gone beyond the bounds of demo­cratic be­hav­iour in spread­ing prophe­cies of abuse and slip­pery slope ero­sion of safe­guards. The pro­vi­sions of the bill ren­der abuse al­most im­pos­si­ble; and if slip­pery slope mod­i­fi­ca­tions were ever pro­posed, they would have to be­come law; that would be the time to protest.
