Medical and Scientific: My dad deserved to die with dignity

17 Mar 2021 - Medical and Scientific

Rose Morton is urging South Australian politicians to immediately pass a Bill that would make voluntary assisted dying legal, saying it would help people suffering from terminal illnesses and their grieving families. Ms Morton, of Banksia Park, said her father suffered immense pain during his illness, as he was diagnosed with prostate cancer which spread throughout his body, and would have chosen to end his life “with dignity” had voluntary assisted dying been an available option. The Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill, first introduced by Opposition legal affairs spokesman Kyam Maher, will be further debated in the state’s Upper House this evening.
