Maarten Van Yzendoornis a candidate for election to the NSW Legislative Council on 28 March 2015, as a representative of the Voluntary Euthanasia Party (NSW).
"If someone wants to end their own life, then that's their business. But he or she and the people involved should be able to have government support to do so in a dignified way and not be classified as a criminal.
Very few people end up terminating their own life, most of the one's that do, do so in an undignified manner, leaving a very bad taste in the mouth for the people that are left behind.
That's why law reform regarding voluntary euthanasia is urgently needed."
