Australian euthanasia lobby want more doctors to kill.

David Sparkes, reporting for ABC News Australia, said that the euthanasia lobby is looking for more doctors who are willing to kill. According to his report:

Victoria has had assisted dying laws since the middle of the year, but euthanasia advocates say access is still proving difficult.
They argue people trying to use the laws are being held back by a lack of accredited specialists to approve the process.

But the State Government says the number of accredited doctors IS keeping pace with the growing demand.
The Age reported that there has been 140 assisted death applications since legalization. The number who have died is unknown. The Age also reported that, during the debate to legalize assisted death, the government predicted that there would be 12 assisted deaths in the first year and 150 assisted deaths per year in the future.

The Australian Medical Association remains opposed to euthanasia and assisted suicide. This news item is designed to convince more doctors to kill.
