The voluntary assisted dying bill has passed Victoria's upper house on Wednesday.

 

After a marathon 28-hour debate, which began at midday on Tuesday, the bill passed with 22 votes to 18.

 

It means Victoria is one step closer to making history and becoming the first state to legalise assisted dying for the terminally ill.

The bill must now go back to the lower house, where it's already passed, to tick off some amendments that were made.

 

More to come
