On 9 April 2018 Neil Francis (pictured) gave evidence to the WA Joint Select Committee on End of Life Choices that more than 75 per cent of Liberal and National voters support voluntary assisted dying but their local MPs are more likely to vote against the will of their constituents. Francis, who is a professional Medical and Social Researcher running the information website DyingForChoice.com, has analyised the voting patterns of state MPs on assisted dying laws.
