This year the Daniel Andrews Government is introducing legislation to legalise euthanasia.

Euthanasia is an issue that attracts strong feelings on either side of the debate.

But whether you support euthanasia or not, everyone can agree that it is a difficult and complex issue.

Euthanasia represents a legal and ethical minefield and our politicians are rushing into this profound change without any appropriate consultation with the Victorian people.

The potential consequences of not ‘getting it right’ on euthanasia are dangerous.

Around the world where euthanasia has been legalised, we’ve seen all sorts of abuses including people forced to undergo euthanasia against their will.  In other cases, people have successfully gained approval for euthanasia because they’re depressed.

If Doctor’s can’t agree on this issue, how are our politicians going to get it right?

During the election campaign, the Labor Party said it had ‘no plans’ to introduce euthanasia.

Now they’re trying to rush this issue through parliament while most Victorians would have no idea this is what our politicians were working on.

Victoria should not legalise euthanasia without first having a full and proper public debate.  The only way to ensure that happens is if every Victorian has the chance to have their say through a plebiscite.

Sign the petition today and call for a plebiscite on this important issue.

To Daniel Andrews, Premier of Victoria 

Legalising euthanasia represents a profound change to Victoria’s laws.

For the first time in our history, it would be legal for doctors to kill their patients or help them kill themselves.

Legalising euthanasia is a legal and ethical minefield. 

Yet the Victorian people have been largely left out of this conversation.

During the election campaign, you never once hinted that your government would introduce euthanasia legislation.

Your government has no mandate to enact such a profound social change on our state.

So we are respectfully calling on you and your government to put this issue to the people of Victoria.

We the undersigned have very real concerns about the ability of our politicians to ‘get it right’ on euthanasia.

Before you rush into this decision, we ask that you first put this issue to the people in a plebiscite so all Victorians can have their say about this important issue.
