Doctors are fighting to #SaveMedevac

Doctors and Australia's peak medical bodies are fighting back against the Morrison Government – who wants to tear down lifesaving Medevac legislation and take away doctors ability to give proper medical treatment to people detained offshore.

The vote should have happened this week - but it didn't. The Morrison Government avoided the issue and pushed the vote to the next sitting period.

That means we have 10 more days. To win this fight, and make sure sick people offshore can get the medical care they need, we need to drown out the Government's lies with the trusted voices of doctors.

Can you stand with Australia's leading doctors and peak medical bodies, and sign the petition to #SaveMedevac?


Federal Parliamentarians,

We call on politicians to support doctors and Australia's peak medical bodies and vote to #SaveMedevac.

This law means that doctors, not politicians, decide the medical treatment for the men and women detained offshore.

It is a sensible medical solution to a medical problem - and it must not be repealed.

In taking action, I agree to GetUp's Privacy Policy.
