NSW has become the last state to legalise voluntary assisted dying.

The bill passed the upper house 23-15 before being sent back to the lower house for final approval.

MPs spent more than eight hours debating nearly 100 amendments on Wednesday but have finally come to a decision today.

Voluntary assisted dying advocate Andrew Denton told Deborah Knight he is overcome with a lot of emotion amid the announcement and its means “a lot” to families.

“It’s a great vindication … and offers hope to others,” he said.

“It’s an evolution of compassion in our society.”

Dying with Dignity representative Shayne Higson told Jim Wilson the announcement comes with mixed emotions.

“This is a law that is much needed.”
