Since euthanasia is illegal in Australia, many hubs have been created to try and gain support from the public to passing the Euthanasia Bill. We know that majority public supports the idea that euthanasia should be legalised although there are some who oppose the idea due to ethical or religious beliefs. There are many euthanasia hubs working to make a change upon society and legalise euthanasia.
Australia’s Voluntary Euthanasia Party (VEP) engages within Australian politics in hope of making a change and gaining support for the public to vote for euthanasia to be legalised. The Voluntary Euthanasia Party believes that through the success of other countries adapting and making a change to legalising euthanasia that it would also work in Australia. Since the public support euthanasia evident through many polls, it is time to make it happen.
“We agree with the historic decision of the Supreme Court of Canada that has allowed voluntary assisted dying for a competent adult with a grievous and irremediable medical condition (including an illness, disease or disability) that causes enduring suffering that is intolerable to the individual in the circumstances of his or her condition” (Voluntary Euthanasia Party, 2015).
As part of the euthanasia supporters, we can help the Voluntary Euthanasia Party with their campaign by casting our vote to legalise euthanasia, donating to the cause and lend a helping hand.
