30 November 2017 Current Affairs: Victoria became the first Australian state to legalise assisted dying, or euthanasia, as lawmakers voted to allow terminally ill patients the right to request a lethal drug to end their lives from June 2019.
The legislation was passed in Victoria after 100 hours of debate, making it the only place in Australia where the practice will be legal.
The scheme will be accessible only to terminally ill patients over 18 living in Victoria with less than six months to live.
That applying must be determined by multiple doctors to be suffering intolerable pain and be of sound mind.
