By Katherine Treadaway In mid-May, the Palaszczuk Government introduced a Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill into the Queensland Parliament. I’ve always had grave doubts about euthanasia bills. We’ve seen one pass in Victoria, Western Australia and in several countries around the world. When I heard the news, I was horrified because the Queensland Bill allows not just physical but also “mental suffering” caused by a terminal illness to make a person eligible for euthanasia. You see, a year and a half ago, one of my best friends took his own life at the age of 21.
