Tesch co-sponsors voluntary assisted dying bill

The Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill was introduced for debate into the NSW Parliament last Thursday, October 14.

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch was among those co-sponsoring the Bill with independent Member for Sydney Mr Alex Greenwich and 25 other cross-party MPs.

"The Bill, which will give terminally-ill people the option to end their lives at a time and place of their choosing, now holds the record for the highest number of co-sponsors to a bill in the history of any Australian parliament," Ms Tesch said.

Both major parties are allowing a conscience vote on the issue.

Ms Tesch said the introduction of the Bill was "a great day for many people throughout our community who would like the right to choose when their time comes".

"I've heard so many heartbreaking stories about loved ones who go on for years suffering silently in pain with terminal illness" said Ms Tesch.

"We should give people the choice to pass on if their suffering is so unbearable.

"Giving them this right ensures that the people we care about most may leave us with the dignity and timing of their own choosing".

Ms Tesch said a team of local people had been "lobbying for this change for over 25 years".
