SUPPORTERS of voluntary assisted dying legislation have made a last ditch effort to convince wavering MHAs in Parliament today.
A dozen supporters in favour of the euthanasia bill gathered on Parliament lawns holding "80 per cent" placards, signalling the level of support for the measure in a recent EMRS poll.
Former Franklin MHA Ross Butler said his message for members voting against the bill was clear.
``Examine your conscience and recognise the vast majority of Australians have indicated they support this and reject the stupid scaremongering put around by various bodies,'' he said.
Mr Butler said he found it very difficult to believe that all Liberal MHAs would vote against the bill in a conscience vote, given the strong community views.
Others told personal stories of loved one who suffered during their final months.
``My grandparents suffered as there is only so much morphine can do,'' one young supporter said.
The bill, sponsored by Labor and Greens leaders Lara Giddings and Nick McKim, will begin debate after 4pm today.
