Becoming an Easter People Together

The End of Life Choice Bill is a New Zealand bill which seeks to give people with a terminal illness or a grievous and irremediable medical condition the option of requesting assisted dying.  ACT New Zealand MP David Seymour entered his private member's bill into the ballot on 14 October 2015. The bill passed its first reading on 13 December 2017, with 76 votes in favour, 44 opposed.

In this article published in WelCom, Fr Bernard Teo CSsR responds to David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill with a Christian perspective.  Dr Bernard lectures in Christian Ethics at Good Shepherd Theological College, Auckland.
