‘Dark day’ as Perrottet caves to death culture

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet is presiding over a parliament so intoxicated with the destruction of human life that Church leaders have labelled it “shameful”. 

From late-term abortion in 2019 to this week’s passage of euthanasia laws, this Premier appears to care more for his career than he does for his Catholic congregation. 

If a civilisation is to be judged by how it treats its weakest members, the NSW parliament has failed miserably and has set a dark and dangerous path…

By allowing a conscience vote on the controversial “assisted suicide” bill, Mr Perrottet traded morality for factional support by enabling the NSW Liberal’s radical Left faction to vote with Labor and Greens.

Depravity has become the norm in NSW as a weak government – and puppet premier – repeatedly caves to the agenda of anti-Christian extremists.

ANTI-LIFE

As Sydney Archbishop Anthony Fisher explained: “This parliament will be remembered as having passed two of the most anti-life pieces of legislation that exists in Australia and, indeed, around the world.

“I’m deeply saddened that the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill has passed the NSW Parliament,” the Archbishop was quoted in The Australian newspaper.

“The disturbing nature of this legislation is compounded by the way the debate over amendments was conducted,” he said.

“All amendments put forward by those who would seek to make this deadly regime even a little bit safer were rejected.

“That no meaningful amendments were accepted speaks to a ‘winner takes all’ approach by the proponents of this bill and reveals an ugliness that has invaded our politics. This does not bode well for the protection of our most vulnerable citizens.”

FAILED

Archbishop Fisher said the parliament had failed in its duty to humanity.

“If a civilisation is to be judged by how it treats its weakest members, the NSW parliament has failed miserably and has set a dark and dangerous path for all posterity, determining a new and disturbing definition of what it means to be human,” he said.

“I thank those few members in both houses of parliament who spoke out against this bill, often in the face of disdain and disparagement from their parliamentary colleagues, from pro-euthanasia lobby groups and from the media.

“I also thank members of the medical and legal professions, religious leaders of many faiths and pro-life groups who lobbied on behalf of the sick and elderly and their right to receive real choice at the end of life.

“Despite our disappointment, our fight for life does not end with this vote. If anything, it begins anew.

“We must redouble our efforts to care for those who are victims of the ‘throwaway culture’ and instead rebuild a culture of life and love in this State.” PC

  1. It appears Mr Perrottet timed this betrayal to be lost in the federal election hype. He’s too smart by half. We won’t forget this and he can expect plenty of blow-back in March 2023.
