Robbie Katter warns euthanasia bill a debate of ‘rich versus poor’

Regional Queensland MP Robbie Katter is calling for proposed voluntary assisted dying laws to be shelved. 

The State Parliament is this week debating a bill to legalise euthanasia to allow terminally ill people to end their life early.

The Member for Traeger has tabled an amendment, seeking $275 million to be committed to improving regional palliative care.

“It has really become a rich versus poor debate,” Mr Katter told Neil Breen.

“If you’ve got private health cover and access to nice palliative care, it could be a different decision about how long you take to end your life.

“People can agree or disagree with this stuff, I get that – people have different points of view – but there’s politics driving this.

“They’re saying it’s this great moral victory they’re having in parliament, well, I think it’s the opposite.”
