Welcome to SAVES

It's my life ... It's my choice ...

No matter who we are -- it should be our human right to claim ownership of ourselves at life's end. When our most basic quality of life has been taken, through incurable illness, we each need the right to choose a peaceful end.

82.5% of Australians shared that view, when surveyed in Newspoll 2012 Poll.

Voluntary euthanasia (VE) is a community issue -- touching everyone when a family member, a friend or a colleague wants release from an illness which has no cure.
