‘It’s not an easy process. But neither should it be. This is the ending of a life. And it ought to be treated in a serious manner – because it's a serious thing to do.’ – Former Supreme Court Justice, Betty King, now Chair of the Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board.
Co-produced by Go Gentle Australia and the Wheeler Centre, season two of Better Off Dead looks at what happened in Victoria after the legislation came into effect in June 2019.
