MPs who have changed their mind on euthanasia

By | Latest News | No Comments

In 2003, the Death with Dignity Bill would have legalised euthanasia by allowing people who are incurably and terminally ill to request and receive medical assistance to end their lives. The bill was defeated, fortunately.

The MPs below were in the House and voted against the bill in 2003.

Nothing has changed since then, except that palliative care and pain management has improved significantly as medical knowledge has increased.

Why are these MPs now voting FOR David Seymour’s euthanasia bill (based on their 2nd Reading vote).

They should vote NO.

Who voted FOR euthanasia in the 1st Reading?
