The article that was published in ABC news in Tasmania on October 14, entitled MP seeks more money for palliative care stated:
A Tasmanian Labor Senator wants the Federal and State Governments to increase palliative care funding.
Helen Polley has made the call during the visit to Tasmania of a prominent Canadian anti-euthanasia campaigner, Alex Schadenberg, who'll be talking to state MP's and Catholic clergy.
Senator Polley has urged people to consider Mr Schadenberg's views.
Senator Polley says palliative care deserves a higher priority.
"Palliative care is an essential part of health care and it certainly should be given a higher priority than the State Government introducing, well the Attorney-General and the Greens, introducing legislation to legalise the murder of another human being by introducing legislation for euthanasia," she said.
A spokesman for the state's Health Minister says funding for palliative care in northern Tasmania alone, will increase by $2.5 million over the next three years.
The Polley family are great Tasmanians.
