/ Dying to Tell / Health / Yes, we are going there – Voluntary Assisted Dying – Dying to Tell; Ep 1

 

The Victorian Government proposes introducing legislation for voluntary assisted dying in Victoria. As parliament resumes the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill will be up for debate.

We talk with Fiona Patten about the process of the parliamentary inquiry and the final report delivered in July. We ask Dr. Marion Harris why she and 100 other oncologists are opposed to the Bill and we will hear the personal stories of those with terminal illness and what it means to them through Go Gentle Advocate, Stacey Halls.
