UPDATE: This legislation was defeated in the Senate 36-34!
Thank you to the AFC supporters who sent TENS of THOUSANDS of emails to Senators using our online webform.
THIS CAMPAIGN IS NOW CLOSED.
Urgent: The Senate is set to debate a bill in August to allow the NT and the ACT to create euthanasia legislation.
YOU can do something to stop this bill! Wherever you live in Australia, please take action now!
A recent Senate resolution will allow Senator Leyonhjelm’s bill to “have precedence over all government business” between August 14 and 16 – and Greens MP Adam Bandt has promised to sponsor the bill in the lower house.
That’s why we need to take action immediately to stand up for human life and dignity in the territories – and to stop such laws spreading to other jurisdictions.
As with the impending euthanasia regime in Victoria (due to commence in 2019), there is a very real risk that other states and territories will be affected in time. That’s why, regardless of where you live, it’s crucial to take action now.
Simply fill out the form to send an email to every Senator in your state or territory. It only takes a minute.
Victorian Liberal MP Kevin Andrews has warned that a “secret deal” may be in progress to overturn the Euthanasia Laws Act of 1997.
“Neither the Coalition partyroom nor I, as the initiator of the legislation, have been consulted. If true, this is deeply disappointing,” he told The Australian.
Help us stop “state-promoted suicide” in the territories by emailing your senators today.
