Victoria First State To Pass Voluntary Assisted Dying Laws | 29 November

The Victorian Parliament this afternoon passed the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill after a comprehensive, historic and passionate debate in both lower and upper houses.

The legislation will now go through an 18-month implementation period before it comes into effect in June 2019.

Victorians living with a terminal illness will have access to voluntary assisted dying after detailed deliberations resulted in amendments that strengthened the Bill, and maintained its vital integrity and compassion.
