Helen Joyce, Editor of the Economist, is in Australia speaking in favour of voluntary assisted dying and promoting a model of legislation which is virtually the same as in the Tasmanian Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2013 and hopefully in the new Bill to be moved soon.
She gave an excellent speech at the Sydney Festival of Dangerous Ideas last Sunday. You can see the speech here.
She was also on the ABC’s Q&A on Monday but there was only a brief section on assisted dying (close to the end of the program). She was also interviewed by Phillip Adams on Late Night Live on Thursday 3 September.
