About this campaign
Being in pain and knowing that we will die badly could happen to any of us. It could happen to you, or a member of your family.
As a compassionate society it’s only fair that we allow people the right to choose a peaceful death over a painful one.
That's why End-Of-Life Choice (our organisation) is promoting the YES TO DIGNITY IN DYING campaign.
MP David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill received its First Reading vote in parliament on 13 December 2017 and it is now heading to a Select Committee. It is important that you support us in making your views heard and that MPs also support compassion and dignity in dying.
The bill gives people with a terminal illness or a grievous and irremediable medical condition the right to choose how and when they die.
You can show your support for Dignity in Dying by making a submission to the Select Committee. Here's some advice on how to make a submission. Closing date for submissions is Tuesday, 6 March 2018.
