Next year: End of Life Choices (Voluntary Assisted Dying) Bill 2020 tabled in Tasmania

Sunday, December 22, 2019

Next year, Mike Gaffney will be tabling a Private Member’s Bill in the Tasmanian Legislative Council: the End of Life Choices (Voluntary Assisted Dying) Bill 2020.

Prior to tabling the Bill, he will be seeking input from the Tasmanian community through a forum process.

Earlier, the Dying with Dignity Bill (2009) and Voluntary Assisted Dying Bills (2013 and 2016) were tabled but didn’t pass the Lower House. However, they did pave the way for reconsideration of this issue and this new bill.

Read the full letter of Mike Gaffney that was published in The Mercury (the main newspaper in Tasmania).
