The Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill officially passed into law in NSW last Thursday, 19 May 2022. The final vote for the third reading of the bill was made in the Upper House.

The debate lasted for over eight hours and all reasonable amendments were voted down, so the bill passed largely unamended.

The champion efforts of the Hon. Greg Donnelly and the. Hon Damien Tudehope should be commended. They were unrelenting in their push back against this bill.
