This election, dignity is on the ballot paper

Every day too many Queenslanders along with their families and carers, experience the pain, the distress and the struggle of untreatable or terminal illness.

Each month on average, at least seven Queenslanders who are suffering from a terminal, or chronic or degenerative condition commits suicide.

 The 2020 Queensland Parliamentary Report into Voluntary Assisted Dying recommends that Voluntary Assisted Dying be legalised and be accessible to Queenslanders, with specific safeguards in place for patients and medical practitioners.

We call on all candidates in the 2020 Queensland Election to commit to supporting Voluntary Assisted Dying for Queenslanders if they are elected on 31 October 2020.

    This is the right decision and is a human rights issue. Having watched my mother suffer a prolonged and painful death due to cancer and now watching my father dying slowly thanks to Alzhiemers, I know that if it was me going through what they did/are, I would want to be able to choose to die with dignity.

    I watched as both my parents went through a long and agonising death. It would be better if folks could die if terminal before they lose their dignity. You don’t do to a family pet what we humans do to each other because of some barbaric law!
