VOLUNTARY EUTHANASIA BILL DEFEATED IN WESTERN AUSTRALAN PARLIAMENT

September 26, 2010

 

 

VOLUNTARY EUTHANASIA BILL DEFEATED IN

WESTERN AUSTRALAN PARLIAMENT

 

The figures speak for themselves. The pro Euthanasia camp could not even organize one third of the parliament to support their proposal. The results are 24 against to only 11 in favour.

 

It looks as they forgot to do the basics of seeing if there was a push for social change before they decided to push it.

 

This was a conscience vote. Yet I have highlighted where the party loyalties lie.

Of the 22 against the proposal only:

5 came from the ALP;

18 came from the Libs and Nats

 

In support of the bill we have:

6 from the ALP

1 from the Nats and

All 4 of the Greens.
