MP Alex Greenwich ‘hopeful’ as debate begins over assisted dying
Parliament will today begin the long-awaited debate over assisted dying legislation.
The bill, tendered by Independent MP Alex Greenwich, would make assisted dying available only to people with terminal illnesses who have less than 12 months to live.
Both Premier Dominic Perrottet and Opposition Leader Chris Minns are expected to vote against it.
Independent MP Alex Greenwich told Ben Fordham he hopes it will pass the lower house by the end of the year.
“So many members have opened their hearts and their minds to the importance of this reform.”
