Tasmania: ACL petition calls on Tas Labor to restore conscience vote on euthanasia.

The Australian Christian Lobby has launched a petition calling on Tasmania’s Labor Party to restore its members’ right to a conscience vote on euthanasia. The ACL reports a number of state Labor conferences have voted to strip Labor MPs of their conscience vote on the matter, effectively forcing them to vote in favour of euthanasia should Tasmania’s Labor party policy require it.

Action

Tasmanian readers can sign the ACL’s petition and are also reminded of the ACL’s election guide for this Saturday’s election.
