Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2020

The Legislative Council passed a Bill to enable Voluntary Assisted Dying (euthanasia) for terminally ill patients suffering intolerable pain. 

The Bill will now be debated in the House of Assembly and ultimately will become law should Members of the Assembly vote for it. 

As the Member for Morialta it is my duty to assess whether this Bill, like any Bill, is in the State’s best interest and vote accordingly. However as your local MP I value your point of view, and should you wish to write to me to share your point of view I am committed to reading all feedback from constituents and taking it into consideration when I make my decision on the Bill and/or amendments that may be presented. 

If you would like to provide your feedback to me, please send through an email to [email protected] or call my office on 08 8365 4224. 

During the Committee stage I will consider amendments along with my position on the final third reading vote. I look forward to listening to that debate, and to receiving feedback from constituents. 

I have included some of the Legislative Council debate below, along with the Bill itself, for your information.

Please do not hesitate to contact me any time if I may be of assistance in relation to any state matter.
