Doctor, Nurse or Allied Health Professional?

Please sign this open letter against the legalisation of assisted suicide

Proposed legislation to legalise assisted suicide and euthanasia will be debated in the Parliament of New South Wales on the 16 November. Similar bills are expected to be introduced in other states in the near future.

Let your members of parliament know that you support increased access to better aged care and mental health services, disabilities assistance and excellent palliative care, rather than the legalisation of assisted suicide and euthanasia which would place the most vulnerable patients at risk as well as undermining the relationship between patients and healthcare professionals which is based on trust and mutual respect.

This is an independent petition which has been organised by concerned healthcare professionals.
