With new assisted dying Bills proposed for South Australia and Tasmania, the inquiry in Victoria and a cross party committee working on the issue in NSW, I am hoping there will be a breakthrough to give compassionate CHOICE in 2016.
Quebec Province in Canada in 2014, and California in USA in 2015 have shown Australia how it can be done in 2016!
