End of Life choice Bill

Waikato Times - - LETTERS -

I would like to con­grat­u­late the young ladies from Hamil­ton Girls’ High School who wrote of the End of Life Choice Bill (what was vol­un­tary eu­thana­sia) en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to pres­sure their MPs re­gard­ing their views.

It is grat­i­fy­ing to know that our young peo­ple can see the com­pas­sion­ate ben­e­fit the avail­abil­ity of help for older peo­ple who have, or are ter­mi­nally ill, en­dur­ing con­stant on­go­ing suf­fer­ing and wait­ing for God.

Un­for­tu­nately it is too late for those thou­sands of poor dar­lings left in that cruel state, ex­ist­ing with lives of no hope and mi­nus any dig­nity.

For those in the present se­nior gen­er­a­tion who are fac­ing the pos­si­ble con­tin­u­ance of a de­grad­ing and painful life, com­mon sense should pre­vail and sup­port given to those who qual­ify.

MPs and the re­li­gious op­po­si­tion should be pro­mot­ing the pass­ing of such a bill.

New Zealand has come a long way, let us keep mov­ing for­ward.
