Petition for Queensland MPs to pass Voluntary Assisted Dying Laws

A voluntary assisted dying bill has just been introduced into Queensland parliament. It will be debated very soon. 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 reform.

Every day too many Queenslanders along with their families and carers, experience the pain, the distress and the struggle of terminal illness. Even with the best palliative care, some people still experience great suffering at the end of their lives.

Please add your name.

We call on all Queensland MPs to vote YES to the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill.

    I held my mother in my arms as she took her last breath.


    Mum had elected not to have the surgery that would save her life, as she would be bedridden for the rest of her life. She made the decision to go palitive, and she knew she would die within a few weeks.


    Those weeks proceedings her death were the most emotionally painful I have ever endured. The last week and a half of her life, the Mum we knew her was no longer with us She was suffering and just wanted it to end. The hospital staff were incredible, but there was only so much they could do.


    She should have been given the choice to die with dignity.

    My friend has terminal Motor Neurone disease and is struggling to breathe amongst all other problems. His future without euthanasia, is an agonising death.

    I have terminal illness and hate the fact I will be left in the hands of doctors who only care about themselves in such a manner they do not care how much you suffer. I can not even get an indication of when or the stages.

    I do know it will be by slow strangulation in effect.

    I find the lack of compassion shocking. I can not understand why they became doctors unless they enjoy watching suffering.

    What I have is rate and I am just a lab rat. Others in the US who

    have same feel the same way.

    I really hope the law gets up in time but imagine the doctors I have will put themselves first and make it as hard as possible for me to have a peaceful end.

    We do not do this to animals.

    I do not understand why a peaceful and painfree death is not a human right. Now that the virus is here perhaps I will decide to let nature take its course because although the end is the same it is faster. I hope the law is not allowed to be stonewalled.

    My husband is in palliative care with bone cancer with no chance of recovery. He is just being kept out of pain with massive drugs until his body gives up. We don’t even do this to our animals!
