We need a conversation about voluntary assisted dying (content warning)

December 18, 2019

CONTENT WARNING 

I thought long and hard about sharing this.

This card is real. What’s written is real.

Federal politicians say that by not giving us our democratic rights to legislate for voluntary assisted dying, they’re protecting us. Will they still say that on reading this?

These Canberrans should have been able to die surrounded by friends and family. Instead they died alone.

We’re a mature community which should be able to have this conversation. While ever that’s denied to us, Canberrans are hurting.
