Euthanasia bill to be debated in NSW

Greens MP Cate Faehrmann was due to introduce a bill giving terminally ill people the right to die last week.

Ms Faehrmann said she believed many members of pro-euthanasia lobby groups and some prominent individuals — including former NSW attorney-general John Dowd, former NSW director of public prosecutions Nick Cowdery, and former NT chief minister Marshall Perron, the architect of Australia’s original right-to-die laws — would come to watch the debate.

Government MPs have been granted a conscience vote on the issue.
