Voluntary Assisted Dying Progress

Voluntary Assisted Dying Progress

The upper house got through another four hours of debate on my Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill bringing the total number of speakers to 33 so far – including 22 in favour.

There are 42 members in the house altogether and while 22 ‘yes’ votes sounds like a clear majority, two were absent with COVID last week and in the next sitting week one will have vacated their seat. There are no ‘pairs’ in a conscience vote and the sheer closeness of the numbers means we cannot take anything for granted. 

I encourage those of you yet to do it, to join the Dying With Dignity NSW campaign > HERE and sign the online petition > HERE.

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