Euthanasia bill finally passes in South Australia after 17th attempt and 26 Years

An assisted dying bill has passed through South Australia's Lower House after decades of efforts.

It took 17 attempts and 26 years but a majority of legislators have finally agreed on a piece of legislation that deals with euthanasia.

Politicians argued, debated and discussed the 117 clauses of the bill for six hours and it went into the early hours of this morning (Thursday June 10).

One of the amendments that sparked conversation was whether to allow private hospitals the opportunity to conscientiously object to euthanasia and simply refer patients to facilities that allow it.

Opposition leader Peter Malinauskas saying there needs to be balance in the law was pleased when that was agreed upon.
