WA passes Voluntary Assisted Dying law in 2019

Wednesday 11th December / presented by Fiona Bartholomaeus

The Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2019 passed in Western Australian parliament yesterday, making WA the second Australian state to pass a voluntary assisted dying law.

Go Gentle Australia report "the 55 amendments that were made to the Bill in the Upper House (more than 400 were defeated) largely codify good medical practice or make explicit something that was previously implicit in the Bill"

Belinda Teh, advocate for Go Gentle Australia, spoke to RTRFM about the Voluntary Assisted Dying bill's passage and the community support for changes to end of life choices in WA.
