“We, the undersigned, oppose any attempt to legalise assisted suicide / euthanasia in New Zealand. We call for the provision of the highest quality palliative care to be made available in all areas of New Zealand.”
Reject Assisted Suicide NZ is a program of Family First NZ. Our goal is to stop the legalisation of assisted suicide in New Zealand because if assisted suicide (euthanasia) is legalised, it would place large numbers of vulnerable Kiwis at risk.
Safe euthanasia is a myth. Safeguards, while sounding good, would not guarantee the protection required for vulnerable people including the disabled, elderly, depressed or anxious, and those who feel themselves to be a burden or who are under financial pressure.
