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.
