Full Submission Analysis

Over 90% of Record Number of Submissions Oppose End of Life Choice Bill

A full analysis of all 38,707 submissions to the Justice Select Committee shows that 90.2 percent oppose David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill. This is a record number of submissions for any bill before the House. They paint a heart-felt and deeply human picture of the views held by many New Zealanders who have considered the implications of legalising euthanasia and assisted suicide, and had sufficient strength of feeling to write in and make their views known.

The Care Alliance calls on members of the Justice Select Committee to demonstrate due respect for the mountain of evidence showing that legalising euthanasia is unnecessary, unwise and dangerous. And if you are concerned then let your local MP know that you stand with 35,000 other Kiwis in opposing the Bill.
