Victorian Bishops respond to latest Voluntary Assisted Dying Report

This week, the Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board released their annual report into the first year of the euthanasia and assisted suicide scheme in Victoria. Alarmingly, 124 Victorians have used the scheme to end their lives in the past twelve months alone, despite assurances that numbers would remain low in its early years. ‘The latest report is not a celebration of good healthcare, but a sad story of the loss of hope and care for vulnerable people.’ To view the Bishops’ statement please click on the link below:
