If you live in the Mount Gambier area of South Australia, please come with a friend and support this event. If you have friends and family living there, encourage them to come and show their support for the choice of Voluntary Assisted Dying.
The encouraging news from South Australia is that on Wednesday 5th May 2021 the Legislative Council voted 14 yes and 7 No to pass the Kyam Maher MLC, Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill. It now goes to the Lower House for consideration and Premier Marshall has indicated debate could start there as early as Wednesday 12th May.
Candles for Compassion will go ahead, either to continue to show MPs that legislation for compassionate end-of-life choice is needed, or to say thank you to the MPs who voted to pass the VAD Bill and as a memorial to those who died waiting for the choice
