Labor councillor’s plea to NSW MPs

City of Sydney Labor councillor Linda Scott, and her father Dr Gary Scott, are urging MPs to vote in favour of a voluntary assisted dying bill due to come before the upper house of the NSW Parliament within months. Dr Gary Scott was diagnosed with stomach cancer last August with stomach cancer, later found to have metastasised to his bones.Dr Gary Scott’s terrible experience of his own father’s death consolidated his belief that no one – patient or family – should have to go through a similar ordeal.”I hope that Dad never has to choose. But I don’t want him robbed of the option about a choice between his life and his death because of a bill not being passed in Parliament.”
