Courageous Dr Rodney Syme – ‘Australian Story’ tonight

Don’t forget ‘Australian Story’ tonight. Dr Rodney Syme is taking courageous action by going public in the way he is. You can support him – and increase the pressure for legislation that 80% of us want – by making your views known to MPs, medical authorities, the media, encouraging debate and action by your friends etc.

Read the story from the ABC showing what a risk he’s taking –

A Melbourne doctor could lose his medical licence and face criminal charges if he defies regulatory authorities and proceeds to help a 70-year-old man end his life.
A similar story in the Age can be found here.
