Month 7, Day 14: Submission date is looming

We had Mitchell’s 23rd Birthday yesterday and celebrated with a great Japanese dinner and a bit of BlackJack. Don’t ask! Today however is all about submissions. If you are interested in doing more than a pro forma one the details below may help. I found writing mine helped flesh out my thoughts yet again and I made it just a little provocative. Feel free to copy and or adjust to suit what you may care to express.

Here is my submission to the Senate Inquiry click here to read it.

Earlier in the week I received an email from Dying with Dignity Victoria. I asked if I could publish it on my website as it outlines a clear process on how to submit and encompasses some points on the bill. To read the email click here.

Submissions must be submitted by Thursday 21 August.  

Lots more on, Senator Richard Di Natale and Dr Rod Syme over on Monday for a strategy chat, doing a Daffodil Day morning tea with Shell now Viva Energy and Coles Express and the Cancer Council tomorrow morning as part of our quest to raise $1 million for the Cancer Council, have met with some lobbyists who are going to send me a proposal around how we might ramp up the public awareness, did an interview which will be in Saturdays Geelong Advertiser and as an eternal optimist took a sports car for a test drive today, just may be what I need!

  1. Yesterday here in Perth, Mrs Nola James was shot by her husband Allan James. Mr James
    had suffer from a long battle with bowel cancer and also suffer a stroke, he had suffer enough and wanted to end his life. He accidentally shot his wife, as he tried to scare her away from the house. The place became surround by the police task force only for them to hear a single gun shot and then found that Mr James had end his life. Mr and Mrs James had a good loving relation and where a great couple.

    I just wanted to share this sad story to all of Australia.
    This is another reason for the great fight to have the right to die law change.

    I have had some more of my friends sign up for you.

    Keep up the good work.

  2. Hi Peter,
    I have just read your submission and it is fantastic. I am just finalising one on behalf of the Voluntary Euthanasia Party (NSW) and a personal one too. I was so glad to see that some of your recommendations matched mine e.g. psychiatric assessment only if referred by either of the medical practitioners and the signing procedure not needing to have the two doctors and the patient all present simultaneously. I know many of out VEP members have done pro forma and some more detailed submissions so the Senate Committee will have a lot to look at. Keep up the great work.
    Kind regards
    Shayne Higson
    Voluntary Euthanasia Party (NSW)
    State Convenor and Lead Candidate
