My Journey Of Fighting For The Right To Pass Away Voluntarily
*** begin quote ***
My name is Holly Warland, I’m 30 years old, I have Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy, and I have won the right to die. In 2021, my home state of
Queensland (Australia) legalized Voluntary Assisted Dying – a process formerly known as euthanasia – for people suffering from terminal
illnesses. I advocated and fought for this law so that I could control when and how I end my suffering.

It’s a very sad story of what this woman is afflicted with.
I hope she finds peace.
With all the furor of Roe v Wade, this is a picture from the other end of life’s spectrum.
As a pro-life pro-choice little L libertarian, I think that the Gooferment, with it’s one size fits all diktats, is the worst way to “regulate” anything. Life and death included.
With the proper safeguards, those in impossible situations should be allowed to “own their own body”.
Sadly, all I can do is empathize and send some good thoughts in her direction.
