Euthanasia legislation passed Holy Moses

Unread post by Byron Bay Fan » Sat 21 Oct, 2017 8:39 am

Amazingly the Victorian government has passed legislation permitting euthanasia or assisted dying. They went at it for about 26 hours overnight. Good on them. Extremely sick were having terrible deaths stretched out over years - we would kill a horse for a lot less. I feel better already.

Many legislators did oppose but was eventually passed 47-37 but still has to pass the upper chamber yet. It was a big hypocrisy the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) opposing euthanasia legislation but effectively practising it in their palliative care hospitals and charging a fortune for it as well. Now the RCC will be cut off at the Khyber Pass and will make a lot less money out of people dying and squeezing every drop out of breath and buck out of them and the health care system.

This can only be a good thing. It’s horrible hearing someone say they are ready to die for years because of the lack of quality of life and there being nothing you can do for them

I thought long and hard as to how to reply to your disgraceful and bigoted posting. I am still at a loss.

I only hope that one day you never have to go to one of the wonderful palliative care hospitals. But if you do, you and yours will have a very different view to what you spewed out above.

I took my mother out of one in Sydney only after one night - she requested me to. They only wanted to drug her into unconsciousness as well as not providing decent nursing service. Those drugs did the same as delayed euthanasia only not by name and only after they made a fortune out of it. She kept consciousness and cracked fúnnies until a few days before her death - that is what family is for.

I heard on Triple J yesterday that it easier in the Vic senate than the lower house. But who really knows.

They vote on this in the lower house in NSW next month. I really hope it passes in all States of Australia it is the only way people can die with dignity.

Strongly oppose Euthanasia.

Hindering the natural death process. Hope it doesn't pass.

I feel for those who have it tough towards the end of their life. However, every way you look at this, it's suicide.

If we agree that it is suicide then that is okay in my book. I know many people whose relo went through horrible deaths and they are all for it, their sick relos was pleading for it as well. The ultimate stage of liberty.

"The natural death process..."? Milky in today's world there is no 'natural death process'. From childhood inoculations, to the plethora of prescription drugs to treat everything from high blood pressure to obesity, to the ingestion of every mineral and herb known to man, we are constantly attempting to eliminate or at least stave off the natural death process. In many cases because of western medicine we outlive our body's natural capacity for life itself.
To watch people die long and painful yet inevitable deaths is one of the most tragic sights to witness.
Bring it on I say.

What's the point of chemo then? That's hindering the natural death process.

Heard the opposite and that the numbers were much tighter in the upper house, but that was on Murdoch's pie in the Sky News which only pictures on the far right of the screen.
