“The Bill you have before you in New Zealand is the most radical and extreme of any piece of legislation anywhere in the world
because basically it is euthanasia on demand.”

Oppose Assisted Suicide/Euthanasia

"The Bill you have before you in New Zealand is the most radical and extreme of any piece of legislation anywhere in the world because basically it is euthanasia on demand." Baroness Ilora Finlay.

I am deeply concerned by attempts to legalise assisted suicide and euthanasia and wish to express my strong opposition to it.

Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide present great risks to the safety of New Zealand's most vulnerable people who already feel that they are a burden to their families and society.

No such legislation, no matter how it is drafted, can ever adequately protect every New Zealander from the risk of abuse.

Euthanasia and assisted suicide legislation would create opportunities for the ultimate in Elder Abuse.

I ask you to oppose the legalisation of assisted suicide and euthanasia under all circumstances.
