From The Age;
She suffered the bowel obstruction she had feared and died on August 19.
Her older brother Damian, 34, was with her, and believes she was still in pain despite massive doses of morphine and other painkillers. In her last hour, he held a bowl under his sister’s chin as she vomited faecal matter.
“The peaceful ending wasn’t there,” he told The Age. “From the death she could have had, taking the Nembutal, saying her goodbyes to friends and family, having everyone there for her and being where she wanted to be, compared to what she did actually go through, it just doesn’t bear imagining.
She hoped that Kevin Rudd would allow the legalisation of euthanasia in the ACT and Northern Territory. What about it Kevin? Why the delay?
