Month 6, Day 11: Read the Dying with Dignity bill

Hi, following is a link to the all important Dying with Dignity bill in the Senate, which Senator Di Natale’s office advises me that it’s currently looking like a September hearing. From my tic toc perspective this is a long time but I plan to be there no matter what. Please have a read and I hope you participate in the hearing process via submission I will advise details when available. Click here to read the Dying with Dignity draft bill.

Next, I attach a short video message which I hope you find both informative and enjoyable. Feel free to spread petershort.com.au as widely as possible to build knowledge, awareness and votes in support of dying with dignity.

  1. For everybody watching this video the gorgeous dog’s name is actually Bella, not Faceless which is the name always used by Peter. She looked very nice on camera and was not yawning with boredom but with admiration!! xx

  2. Hi Peter,
    It is so exciting to know that it looks like the hearing for Richard Di Natale’s bill will be in September. It will be crucial to get thousands of submissions to balance those from religious opponents so let me know as soon as you know how we can help. With over 1500 members in NSW alone, I am sure that many would be willing to make submissions, especially if we can explain what is involved.
    No-one would be happier than me to see a federal bill pass that would allow all Australians suffering from a terminal illness to access medical assistance to achieve a peaceful and dignified death. Even though assisted dying has traditionally been a state based issue I agree with you and Richard that it would be far better if any dying with dignity law benefited all Australians, not just residents in a particular state or territory.
    I look forward to hearing from you and keep up your amazing efforts.

    Kind regards

    • Hi, your support is greatly appreciated. It is a long road but I really believe the changes in the world at a macro level are working to get this done once and for all for all Australians. Quebec a few weeks ago passed a bill, the fact that we have a national bill and the changes in UK all good.
