Exit Advocates the Swiss Model

New Queensland Euthanasia Law

Exit's submission to the Queensland Law Reform Commission on the type of law the Government should consider introducing is now available on the Exit International Website.

Not surprisingly, Exit has submitted that the best legislative model is the one in operation in Switzerland:
  • where the person does not need to be seriously ill, or even ill at all
  • where doctors are not the only people authorised to assist
  • where the only criteria is an altruistic motive by those assisting
  • where the safeguards of 'mental capacity' & 'doing the action oneself' are rigorously enforced & have operated well since 1937
Under the medical model legislative framework adopted in both Victoria and West Australia, as Dutch journalist Henk Blanken has written in a 2018 Guardian long read, the person's death will never be their own.

It is a sad story. The right to die has been discussed for so long now in the Netherlands that we have come to believe we each have the right to die when we want. But when push comes to shove, the patient is not the one who decides on their euthanasia. It is the doctor who decides, and no one else.
