The Australian Care Alliance has published an incisive commentary by Professor David Kissane on the My Life, My Choice report.
The Hon Nick Goiran MLC, who was on the Committee and was the only member to attend all its hearings, issued a comprehensive minority report titled " The Safe Approach to End of Life Choices: License to Care Not Licence to Kill".
Both these reports point to the impossibility of effective safeguards for any assisted suicide law and the unavoidability of wrongful deaths. Learn more about eleven categories of wrongful death from our website.
Experience shows that, although the majority of MPs start off in favour of assisted suicide laws, as they become better informed about the problems with such laws many of them do change their minds. This takes time. So start writing now but be prepared to write again later!
