Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Dorothy Schwenke

AGNES WATER QLD 4677

Total Signatures - 181

Sponsoring Member: Stephen Bennett MP

Posting Date: 22/08/2013

Tabled Date: 22/08/2013

Responded By: Hon Jarrod Bleijie MP on 19/09/2013

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that Queensland residents do not have the option of choosing assisted suicide or euthansia to end their lives.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to enact legislation that enables residents to choose, while of sound mind, the legal option of assisted suicide or euthanasia should they become unable to care for themselves and thereby lose their independence, dignity and quality of life.
