Legislation allowing eligible New South Wales residents to choose to end their own life is now law after a marathon debate.

NSW is the last state in Australia to pass voluntary assisted dying laws after the bill was ratified in the Lower House today - though both the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory are forbidden from legislating on it.

The NSW Upper House held a marathon debate overnight with nearly 100 amendments put forward.

One further amendment was debated today, followed by a final vote, which saw the bill pass 23 votes to 15.

We welcome NSW to a state of play that was acceptable in Roman times, well done, I presume the bribes from the Christian Lobby groups didn’t arrive in time to “sway the conscience vote”.
