NZNO seeks your feedback on  the End of Life Choice Bill.   The purpose of the Bill is to give people with a terminal illness or a grievous and irremediable medical condition the option of requesting assisted dying. The motivation for this Bill is compassion. It allows people who so choose, and are eligible under this Bill, to end their lives in peace and dignity, surrounded by loved ones.

The bill:

  • defines who is eligible for assisted dying
  • details the provisions to ensure that this a free choice
  • outlines the steps to ensure a person is mentally capable of understanding the nature and consequences of assisted dying.
