Voluntary Euthanasia Party

logo-voluntary-euthanasia-partyThe Voluntary Euthanasia Party (VEP) was created to provide the compassion, dignity and choice that current legislation is denying terminally and incurably ill Australians. The party provides a clear political outlet for the overwhelming public support for voluntary euthanasia.

Over 80% of Australians are in favour of new legislation and we wish to allow that sentiment to be clearly demonstrated at the ballot box.

We believe that competent adults with a terminal or incurable illness who are experiencing unbearable suffering deserve the right to make informed choices about the timing and manner of their death through appropriate and humane medical assistance.

We support the formation of cross-party working groups to draft legislation so a Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill, with strict safeguards, can be introduced as soon as possible.

The Voluntary Euthanasia Party believes each voter should direct their own preferences. We will not direct preferences to any other parties and we will not suggest to voters how they should allocate their preferences.

The major parties have ignored the wishes of the vast majority of Australians for far too long. Together, if enough of us raise our voices, tell our stories and show why this is important, we can change that.
