Compassion and respect

If you haven’t yet done so, ask your MP to please vote for the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill

Time is getting short before the debate on the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2016  in the House of Assembly tomorrow, 24 May.  And our rally between 1 and 2 in the Parliament Gardens.

The strategies of opponents  – yes, the same ones as always – are as obvious as they are callous and cynical:

  • failure to acknowledge, and respond with any empathy, kindness or respect to, the people the Bill is designed to assist – people who are very seriously ill, with no chance of recovery or permanent improvement, with intolerable suffering that cannot be relieved adequately and who have run out of options
  • failure to meet the standards of evidence or reasonable assumptions and arguments that are required for all legislation (or to meet their own standards they apply elsewhere).

  1. I support the dying with dignity legislation. Human rights require that all people should have the right to choose how and when they die and who will be with them when they die.
