FOR a long time, morally sane critics have warned of the mission creep that will extend “voluntary assisted dying” (murder-suicide) to other than terminal and aged people. Predictably, then, having adjudged the coast clear after a bothersome year of faked mercy, the Queensland Premier returns to her favourite policy: death.
There is a juncture in the last stanzas of our lives where most us us will be “dying” in a broad sense. This legislation (and the more explicitly Nazi iterations to follow) enables doctors and uninterested families to passively-aggressively badger the frail and suffering to take a pill and make it easier on everybody. The Royal Commission into aged ‘care’ – and the ‘institutional’ failures that led to it – proved that, as a nation, we see the elderly as an economic and personal nuisance. Death-obsessed Palaszczuk banished the young from beaches last year for political reasons only, the pretext being to save the life of “even one” vulnerable person. Now she wants doctors to kill as many of them as possible. Fully vaccinated, mind you; fully vaccinated and murdered.
