What does the Australian public think about voluntary assisted dying?


Australians are overwhelmingly in favour of voluntary assisted dying. Polls from the past 20 years show public support at more than 70%. The vast majority of peak medical bodies are either supportive or neutral on voluntary assisted dying, including Palliative Care Australia, Royal Australian College of GPs, Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation, Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, Australian Psychological Society and Australian Association of Social Workers to name a few.
