Another attempt is being made to legalise euthanasia in South Australia.
Independent MP Bob Such will introduce a private member's bill this week in the House of Assembly.

Mr Such says his legislation is tighter and would only be allowed when a patient who is dying cannot get adequate pain relief.
"This bill has merit because it's very limited and has safeguards in terms of checks and balances," he said.
