Noosa Greens Candidate, Jim McDonald will join Neil Francis, Chairman and CEO of YourLastRight.com Limited, from Melbourne, to address this week's Dying with Dignity Queensland meeting in Maroochydore.
Dr McDonald recently raised the issue during the State election campaign, stating: “I believe that people who are living with a terminal illness should be able to make informed choices between palliative care and ending their life with dignity.
“There are many people in the Noosa electorate who are not ready to make such a decision but who want to be able to do so when the time comes.
He said that personal choice in health matters is one of the important principles for The Greens.
He also said that he would support changing the law so that those choices could be made legally. “Of course, there need to be safeguards against the abuse of such a system.”
Dr McDonald said that he will introduce a Private Members' Bill into the Queensland Parliament if he was elected next Saturday.
