75% sounds like a majority of Victorians, but that majority does not vote. This law will not pass unless enough local constituents tell their MP to support it. So please tell them now that you want this law.
75% Of Victorians want the choice of a peaceful death. But only their MP can grant their wish.
There is a cry for help. It may be muted, it may be veiled, but it is there nonetheless. And they all know it – including doctors. They know that this person is screaming for help but no one is going to answer this call. Not in this society. So they have got to die alone.”
They need to hear from as many of their local constituents as possible. We need you to make your voice heard now and make it clear to politicians that this is a law you want.

If you would like to share your story, we would love to hear it. Overwhelmingly, people whose friends or family members have witnessed a terrible death support VAD, but these stories need to be heard. It is a powerful way to make an impact on MPs who are deciding where their conscience lies on this vote.
Let your friends know your support this law. We need as many voices as possible to speak to the Victorian MPs:
