Last year, the Victorian Parliament passed a landmark bill that allows the terminally ill to decide to end their life.
The change of law is a start, but is not the end of the fight, as people suffering extreme pain from incurable conditions may not be considered “terminally ill”, and so are obligated to leave their families behind and end their lives in a foreign country.
According to a 2017 survey, 87 percent of Australians are in favour of letting people who are suffering from an incurable condition choose to end their lives.
The Liberal Democrats are committed to seeing this support manifest itself in legislative change.Share on Facebook Share on Twitter
