Please ACT NOW - Use this automated form to send a message to your State's Senators.

Things you might mention in your message:

  • Every Australian state has now passed assisted dying laws
  • Territorians should not be denied the same end of life rights as other Australians simply because of where they live
  • The ACT and NT parliaments should have the right to pass laws which affect their residents
  • The religious views of members of federal parliament should not determine the end of life rights of NT and ACT residents
  • VAD laws have been proven safe and effective in Australia and overseas

Your message will be sent as an email to the Senators in your state or territory. You will receive a copy too.
