Lack of Understanding of Suicide Bodes Ill for Safeguards

This feature, from the local Press demonstrates that the Australian Capital Territory (A.C.T) health system, among others, cannot yet understand, let alone prevent an alarmingly high rate of suicides here. So how on earth would any so-called safeguards function adequately if legislation were potentially to legalise euthanasia? Truth is, those who were truly determined would easily find their way around such measures.

    Spot on Daniel! It is impossible to guarantee safety for all citizens once the time-honoured prohibition on killing (the criminal code) is breeched in this way. Justice and protection for all demands that euthanasia & assisted suicide are shunned!
