Marshall Peron: Why we must legalise VAD
by Marshall Perron
It is almost bewildering why our Queensland politicians (with the sole exception of the soon-to-retire Peter Wellington) are terrified of embracing the subject of voluntary euthanasia. Ever since the Brexit vote, the election of Donald Trump and the resurrection of Pauline Hanson, the commentary has been that citizens are fed up with politicians who do not listen. Regarding voluntary euthanasia, every Queensland MP has failed. While Peter Wellington deserves credit for trying, nothing has been achieved.
