    Tasmania’s Legislative Council is debating the state’s fourth debate on voluntary assisted dying legislation. Voluntary assisted dying laws have already passed in Victoria and Western Australia. In WA, it will not be implemented until mid-2021. In both Victoria and WA and in the Tasmanian bill, the legislation requires or would require that participating patients are at least 18, and acting voluntarily. Tasmania’s bill requires a person to be suffering intolerably with a medical condition likely to kill them. Subscribe: http://ab.co/1svxLVE
