Care Alliance to appear before Health Select Committee

The Care Alliance will make its oral submission to the Health Select Committee’s investigation into ending one’s life in New Zealand on Wednesday 14 September.

Matthew Jansen, the Secretary of the coalition of groups opposed to the legalisation of euthanasia and assisted suicide, said that he is looking forward to the opportunity to explain why euthanasia is unnecessary and dangerous.

“While we only have 15 minutes to present, I am looking forward to highlighting some of the key issues that the Select Committee will need to consider in their investigation into the desire to end one’s life,” he said.

ENDS

The Care Alliance is scheduled to appear before the Health Select Committee at 11.00amon Wednesday 14 September 2016 in Select Committee meeting room 1, Bowen House.
