Petition to Delay this Referendum.

Petition Reason.

The August 2020 Covid-19 lockdown limits public discussion and distribution of information about the important issues to be considered in the End of Life Choice Act referendum.

 

The public should not be required to deal with the weight of the referendum question while grappling with the stresses and pressures of the pandemic. Voters are unable to access public meetings to hear from experts, palliative care specialists, lawyers and people living with terminal illnesses.

 

New Zealand’s democratic process requires voters to make a fully informed decision. To proceed with the referendum from 5-19 September 2020 in the current extraordinary circumstances could undermine the credibility of the outcome.

This is why we, the people, request for the End of Life Choice Act referendum to be delayed.

 Online Petition

Public meetings

We are finding that if we talk about 4 camps – those who don’t care, pro euthanasia and pro the Act, against euthanasia and against the Act.  Fourth camp is growing and that’s those who have some support for assisted dying but will not vote for this Act.   Then people feel ok about joining the fourth camp.
