Australian prelate speaks out against euthanasia

Catholic World News - July 06, 2010

After Tasmania’s attorney general spoke in favor of a bill that would permit euthanasia in the Australian state, Archbishop Adrian Doyle of Hobart denounced her support of the measure.

“It is concerning that there is a perception in our community which claims that euthanasia as being a dignified death, promoting the premise that any other avenue of death is ‘undignified’ and euthanasia (or medical assisted suicide) as the only method of a dignified death,” he said.

“I am equally concerned that the attorney general will use the resources of her office to push this bill when there are so many more issues which are a higher priority, such as mental health, welfare, hospital and housing waiting lists and education.”
