Today I am working on polishing my intro for the Senate hearing on Wed 15th in Melbourne. It is public so if interested the details are below. Not sure how big the room is. I am very excited as the only solo person or as they call it witness to be called. Let me assure you I am going into this in the belief I am representing the thoughts, hopes and wishes of my 21,000 petition signers, my Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn supporters, The Dying with Dignity and associated groups, the politicians who have represented to me they support Dying with Dignity and of course the 82% of Australians who want this draft bill turned into national legislation. I also feel I owe it to both Senator Richard Di Natale and Dr Rodney Syme who have given me the power of understanding such an inspirational pallitave tool, namely CHOICE about medically assisted Death when terminally ill.
