Each signature on this petition brings us one step closer to passing laws to give terminally ill Queenslanders the right to a peaceful death, with their loved ones by their side.
Right now, there are terminally ill people in Queensland experiencing unbearable suffering, which cannot be relieved, even with the best palliative care.
We cannot let this continue. A voluntary assisted dying bill has been introduced into Parliament and it will be debated in September. These laws have already been passed in Victoria, Western Australia, Tasmania and South Australia.
The people of Queensland must not be left behind on this important law reform.
We call on all Queensland MPs to vote YES to the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill.
