Adele welcomes the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2019 that was introduced into the WA State Parliament in August 2019. As from 1 July 2021, eligible Western Australians will have the choice of voluntary assisted dying if they have an illness or disease that is going to cause their death and their suffering cannot be relieved.
Adele Carles spoke out about the need for Euthanasia law in WA when she was a politician, saying “the right to die with dignity is central to personal autonomy and bodily integrity – I see it as a fundamental human right.”
