Federal Euthanasia Bill to be debated this Thursday...

The Greens Bill to permit euthanasia in the Northern Territory and the ACT is to be debated this Thursday, so its time to start urgently lobbying your local member and Senator - remember that this will be a conscience vote.

So phone their electoral office, write an email or (quickly) send a letter - try and avoid using a standard form letter if you can, but instead make it personal, and make it clear that it is a vote changer for you (assuming it is of course)...

Those in the ACT might pay particular attention to allegedly catholic Liberal senator Gary Humphries, and remind him that we have a Federal Parliament for a reason, and if the Territory wants to be a State then it should go through the necessary steps to achieve that status.  Those in a position to stop a moral wrong have a duty to act; if he doesn't want to exercise his vote, then perhaps he should resign and let someone else do so!  Let's hope Archbishop Mark is also having a word in his pearly...
