Dying With Dignity Victoria
The overwhelming majority of Australians (85%) believe that terminally ill individuals should have a right to seek and obtain assistance to end their life with dignity.
That right does not exist.
Current law lags significantly behind the will of the people.
Founded in 1974, Dying with Dignity Victoria (DWDV) is an education, "self-help"and law reform organisation pursuing public policies and laws in the state of Victoria that enhance self-determination and dignity at the end of life.
Our aims are:
-:- to promote legislation that gives effect to freedom of choice and individual human rights -to acknowledge the right of terminally and incurably ill people with profound suffering to die with dignity
-:- to carry out a continuing public education policy to achieve such legislation
-:- to educate the public in the need for Living Wills and Advance Directives
-:- and provide counselling and other assistance to people on their end of life rights.
