Voluntary Assisted Dying
Simone is proud to support the McGowan Labor Government’s Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill.
In addition to personally supporting the Bill, Simone has consulted our community and it has become clear that the overwhelming majority of Fremantle residents also want Voluntary Assisted Dying legalised.
The Bill has been carefully drafted with 102 safeguards, following extensive consultation with clinicians and the community.
Together with the Government’s investment in improving palliative care in WA, the Bill will give patients more choice, control and dignity at the end of their lives.
