Euthanasia Bill defeat

Lynn is pictured here outside the WA Parliament with Former Chief Minister for the Northern Territory, Marshall Peron, before the Voluntary Euthanasia debate.

“Since the vote, several people have contacted me, thanking me for my compassionate stance, even if they disagreed with the position I took supporting the Bill. My heart goes out to those who are suffering now. I hope their dismay is not overwhelming,” said Ms Maclaren.

The Northern Territory passed Volutary Euthanasia laws in 1995, only to have the legislation invalidated by intervention from the Federal Government.

The WA Legislative Council rejected the VE Bill 2010 by 11 votes to 24. Lynn supported the Bill.
