Liberty Victoria supports a terminally ill person’s right to die with dignity. As early as 1998 Liberty Victoria produced a booklet titled The Final Choice – Considerations on Choosing to Die, and has in the past supported voluntary euthanasia Bills.
Liberty Victoria has had the benefit of reading Dying With Dignity Victoria’s (DWDV) comprehensive submission to the Legal and Social Issues Committee. We endorse the DWDV submission. We firmly agree with DWDV’s recommendations for end of life choices. We believe that their specific exclusions and safeguards on page 9 and 10 of their submission address the concerns often raised by those opposed to voluntary euthanasia and should be adopted in any forthcoming Bill.
