The Care Alliance brings together organisations and individuals who want to nurture better conversations about dying in Aotearoa New Zealand. All members of the Alliance share an understanding that a compassionate and ethical response to suffering does not include euthanasia and assisted suicide.

A critical issue facing the Alliance is David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill which had its first reading in Dec 2017. We encourage you to learn more about the Bill, and to make a submission to the Justice Select Committee explaining why you are opposed.
