Month 10, Day 10: Dying with Dignity is having its Berlin Wall moment, thanks to the Senate Committee and The Age

hands

Throughout this week, The Right To Die will feature in The Age and I will be posting links to them on the blog if you are unable to obtain a copy of the paper. Please click here to read today’s article Part 1 – Righting a travesty for the terminally ill on The Age website and click here to see my interview with cousin Michael Short.

The Senate Standing Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs has today tabled its final report into an exposure draft of federal dying with dignity legislation and all members have recommended a conscience vote. Please click here to read the report.

Please use this to build momentum in gaining people to sign the petition. Never before has Australia been in a position this advanced and public in finally getting the laws to reflect what the population has demanded for so long. Now is the time to stop saying “yes but this has always been in the occasional news but the political lobbies will prevent it.” This has led to massive apathy and lack of confidence in ourselves.

From today Dying with Dignity should have a new meaning for everyone and that is we demand and will see that the DiNatale  bill is  formed into law by taking individual action.Our law makers and Tony Abbott must respond to our needs. I am still waiting to meet our PM. Don’t let this go!
