Inquiry into End of Life Choices

The report for the Inquiry into End of Life Choices was tabled in the Victorian Parliament on the morning of Thursday 9 June.

This will be the closest that Victoria has come to legalising voluntary assisted dying in almost a decade. If this inquiry influences the Victorian Parliament to pass legislation, it will give Victorians who are faced with terminal or advanced incurable illness or enduring intolerable suffering the choice to end their suffering on their own terms.
