Default Euthanasia in QLD

After seeing both my grandmother and mother suffer through the pain of cancer knowing what the outcome will be I hope people will see their way to supporting euthanasia in QLD.

We treat our pets better at end of life than we do our families.

About time it was made national as well - this state based routine won't cut it.
At the moment you have to wait til mid year and travel to Victoria.

This is only from what I’ve heard, so I’m not stating this as fact, but is it the case now that doctors just pump you full of morphine till you go, as a way to make you ‘comfortable’?

We’ve been lucky I guess if you could say that, that deaths in our family while not painless, have been very fast so we haven’t had to consider this, but it’s about time we had that choice for ourselves.

All drugs administered are accounted for, morphine in particular. If a doctor was to “pump you full” of any drug and was found out he would be open to every malpractice law suit under the sun.
Rumour has it that some nurses hold back certain drugs to give the patient a last dose at the right time

This is purely a rumour and I have no proof nor do I suggest that such practices happen.

All votes in this poll are completely anonymous.

My wife is now in Paliative Care with a reasonably short time remaining. While i'm in support of Euthanasia, the decision has to be with her, the patient, and no one else. If she wishes to raise the subject, we can then discuss it, but until then, i'm not going to even mention it.

It's a terrible situation to be in Gypzy.
We had something similar with my mother in law who was only 59!


My wife and I have discussed euthanasia and 'do not resus' situations with our sons (30 and 23yo). They know what our wishes are and are on board with our decisions.
In fact, both have made the same decisions off their own bat.


I will admit that our decisions were influenced by my many years working with people with severe disabilities, so maybe we have a different outlook to others.

A human being should have the liberty to decide what to do with their mortal vessel.

Governments should not control life and death to the extent that they currently do.
