Turn down the assisted suicide and euthanasia bill New Zealand

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


David Seymour has written an evil decree for New Zealand which is conveniently called the "End of Life Choice Bill." The purpose of this bill is to allow assisted suicide and euthanasia to people who are experiencing "unbearable suffering" or have a "grievous and irremediable medical condition."

Two things are startling.

The maximum penalty for a person who frauds the paperwork or otherwise violates the rules laid out in this bill is 3 months in prison or a $10,000 fine. This is in no way comparable to a just punishment for murder of an innocent person. Especially since New Zealand jails care for inmates very well from what I have heard.

The second startling thing about this bill is that it will overrule clauses in the Crimes Act clauses which criminalize killing another person. This is euthanasia. This bill proposes the administration of lethal drugs by a medical practitioner via injection or ingestion through a tube. It is voluntary euthanasia when a person requested this, but there is nothing to sufficiently stop involuntary euthanasia in this bill. Euthanasia is murder according to Section 160, Section 164 and Section 167(a) of the Crimes Act 1961.

It is also on my heart as a disabled citizen of New Zealand, that I do not want the government to take away disabled and elderly people's right not to be incited to suicide. We have an equal right to life as everyone else. We only have one life to live. This bill sanctions doctors both to advise a person to take their own life, and also to prescribe lethal drugs for them either to take or trigger into their vein which is assisted suicide. Encouraging or helping a person to commit suicide is prohibited by Section 179 of the Crimes Act 1961

Thankyou to my supporters very much for your help. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLN1qYh3UqQdvR5d3J9NI9c0JWbPL-jEGy

This bill is in the process of being made an unjust decree in New Zealand. It's second reading before parliament is in March.
