Welcome

We are a national organisation of Australian medical practitioners, committed to attaining a legal choice for rational adults with intolerable suffering, for which there is no realistic chance of cure or relief, who wish to end their lives at a time of their choosing and in the presence of those whom they choose. Assistance may be by doctor prescription of medication for personal consumption, or by doctor administration.
