NSW passes Voluntary Assisted Dying legislation
On Thursday, after hours of deliberation, the Voluntary assisted dying bill passed both houses to become an official legislation in New South Wales. Voluntary assisted dying is a medical process available for some terminally ill patients, allowing for them to bring their death to a time of their choosing.
NSW is the last state in Australia to pass the legislation.
The Daily spoke with Shayne Higson, Vice Presidents of Dying with Dignity to discuss the passing of voluntary assisted dying legislation in NSW and its impact on those who are terminally ill.
