Euthanasia bill in NSW

Postby seamas o dalaigh » Fri Nov 17, 2017 7:47 pm

After a marathon debate that ran all of Thursday and ended at nearly midnight, the bill to legalise voluntary assisted dying has failed to pass the New South Wales' Upper House by a single vote.

With 19 voting in support but 20 against, the result came down to the wire.

MPs were given a conscience vote on the legislation, introduced by Nationals MP Trevor Khan, which would allow terminally ill patients over the age of 25 to end their own lives with the help of doctors.
