Voluntary Assisted Dying Progress

Voluntary Assisted Dying Progress

The Legislative Assembly passed the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 52 votes to 32 on Friday after a marathon debate late into the night on Thursday.

Hostile amendments did not get support, but we adopted changes that will improve the legislation. The vote reflects the strong community support for this reform and sends a clear message to the Legislative Council for that House to also support the bill.

Thank you to the 28 co-sponsors of the bill, as well as the many individuals and organisations working with the community to get this reform done, including Dying with Dignity NSW and Go Gentle Australia.

Let's work together to celebrate and protect our great city!
