It’s time for a Voluntary Assisted Dying Law in 2017

Why now? old

Now is our time to change the law in Victoria.

Two people a week resort to suicide or difficult deaths in Victoria.  There is no law to help or protect those close to them. Now is our time to change the law.

Why now?

The Victorian parliament will hold a conscience vote on voluntary assisted dying in the second half of 2017.

If the law is passed, it will come into effect from 2019. It would be the only Australian voluntary assisted dying law. Learn more about the proposed law

The facts

Victorians want change

80% of Victorians support the legalisation of voluntary assisted dying. Despite this fact, our current laws do not match public opinion.

Victorians are suffering

Australia has one of the best palliative care systems in the world, and we should be proud of it. But for that small percentage of patients who can’t be helped through palliative care, the suffering at the end of life can be savage.

Parliamentary report

The Parliamentary Committee has proposed a new law popularly known as ‘the Victorian model’. The scope of the law is narrower than similar laws that have come before. Learn more about the proposed changes
