Mr Stanhope has informed us that he’s written to all Members of the Australian Parliament “urging them to pass the Restoring Territory Rights (Voluntary Euthanasia Legislation) Bill 2010”
“The debate at the heart of this Bill, which has been introduced by Senator Bob Brown, is about the rights of the ACT Legislative Assembly to make laws for the peace, order and good government of the community it serves,” Mr Stanhope said.
“The people of the ACT and the Northern Territory, along with their elected representatives, should have the same right as other Australians to debate the issue of voluntary euthanasia, and to legislate for themselves, if they so choose.
“What justice is there in the current situation, where a NSW Parliament or a Tasmanian Parliament may debate and legislate for euthanasia, but not a Territory Parliament?
*sobs* IT’S ALL SO UNFAIR!!!
