What you can do
Now is the time to be active. The only way to get law reform is to get State MPs to vote for the legislation.
The most important action you can take is to tell your local State MP that you want them to support the Death with Dignity Bill 2016.
... then what, talk to your neighbours, your family, your friends - and get them to talk to their MP as well.
Ring your local State MP
Email your local State MP
Write to your local State MP
Encourage your friends, neighbours and family to contact their State MP.
Read one of the End of Life Choice Newsletters if you are looking for ideas you would like to put to your MP.
Use the GoGentleAustralia website to email your local MP – contains a direct link if you wait briefly for the second SA page to open.
Familiarise yourself with some of the latest information through the links on the Resources page.
After you contact your MP, tell SAVES what happened. What was their response? What arguments did they use? What questions did they have?
Email us: email@example.com
Contact your local Messenger, write to the Advertiser or InDaily, ring in on talkback radio.
Letter to the Editor, The Advertiser can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Invite a speaker from SAVES to your next community organisation meeting. SAVES can provide speakers for community meetings, such as Rotary, Probus, U3A and your retirement village. The latest news of progress towards law reform and answers to audience questions of interest make for informative and lively discussion.

A bequest is another way to support the campaign for legal voluntary euthanasia.
The appropriate wording for the gift of a specific sum is:
'I bequeath to the South Australian Voluntary Euthanasia Society Inc. the sum of $......'
If you wish to leave your entire estate to SAVES the wording would read:
