Euthanasia bill defeat in South Australia a victory for civilised values

The upper house of the South Australian parliament has just voted to reject a bill to allow euthanasia tabled by Mark Parnell.

Anthony Ozimic, SPUC Pro-Life's communications mananger and an expatriate Australian, has told the media today:
"Those seeking to develop civilised values which respect the sanctity of human life should be encouraged by this vote. In spite of all the money, media support and propaganda of the euthanasia lobby, many politicians recognise the dangers to public safety in introducing such legislation. This victory for civilised values joins the recent defeat of a similar bill in Tasmania, as well as the repeated votes by the British House of Lords against assisted suicide."
