The End of Life Choice Bill will allow New Zealand citizens who are suffering from an incurable and insufferable possibly terminal condition can choose to end their life with the assistance of a doctor. The direct quote from the bill being "that the person suffers from a terminal illness which is likely to cause death within 12 months, or from an irreversible physical or mental condition that, in the person’s view, renders his or her life unbearable". This bill will require the person to be sound of mind and have been consulted by two medical professionals before being allowed to continue. a recent Horizon poll states that 75% of New Zealand people support the bill.
This bill is about giving New Zealand people their right to choose to die with dignity and not be forced to live in pain as family and friends watch the person's quality of life diminish before their eyes. this bill is calling for compassion, care, and dignity for those suffering in New Zealand. By signing this petition you are showing your support for people who are suffering from debilitating illness to finally be free from suffering and take control of their choices to life again.
