Clearly Dying with Dignity and the draft bill in the senate needs conscience voting and parties do not come into it. That is the hope and goal I have. However we then get confronted by things like in my case local state elections. Some parties are clearly supportive of changing the law so terminally ill and incurably suffering people will have a choice around medically assisted death. So the dilemma. I have been given great support from some interesting sources such as Fiona Patten and the Australian Sex Party and their 30,000 plus supporters. Also the Greens clearly at local and federal levels with the likes of Richard Di Natale and the greens senators and leader Christine Milne, and state levels in fact across their whole party. Then comes the active support from Labor’s Alannah MacTiernan and Melissa Parke……..these are a few but are key activators. I need more. Have a look at the note sent to 30,000 plus Sex Party supporters on the following link.

I conclude that picking parties and setting up a non partisan situation would be foolhardy but I do think it sensible when considering your vote to look to see if it goes somewhere supporting your underlying goals such as Dying with Dignity. This is yet another way to express yourself and I know I would be hypocritical not to support someone with this cause on their agenda on a person by person basis. I don’t say change party but ask your local parliamentarian and then see if they will be an agent for change or you might consider it. Thoughts? Any help as from Fiona and the gang would be welcome.
