The Vic Andrews Govt has released a Discussion paper on its proposed Euthanasia Bill asking Victorians to help design the death bill! Prof Brian Owler, Chair-Ministerial Advisory Panel stated “… the panel will not consider feedback that expresses an opinion for or against assisted dying. The panel asks for "feedback based on people's" expertise and experience to provide perspectives on the access, safeguards and practical considerations in creating a compassionate and safe assisted dying framework". Obviously the views of those "experienced" in the detail of killing patients are being sought but those who oppose the killing are excluded. Express your opposition to the design of the killing programme! It is the next step in the deadly process. Send an email to the Panel by Mon 10 April 2017 to <Assisteddying.firstname.lastname@example.org> Contact your MP and tell him/her you oppose the design of a bill which kills Victorians. Email us for contact details.
A simple paragraph:
I.......am opposed to the introduction of euthanasia in the state of Victoria.
I continue to state my opposition to patient killing, at every point of the development of this bill despite being told I am only able to submit to the Discussion Paper if I am contributing to the development of the death bill.
I request my view opposing euthanasia is tabled in response to the Voluntary Assisted Dying Discussion paper. Yours sincerely
