Maryan Street should unequivocally reject ExitAction


15 December 2016

Maryan Street should unequivocally and immediately reject ExitAction


The Care Alliance has called on Maryan Street, President of the Voluntary Euthanasia Society, to unequivocally and immediately reject Philip Nitschke’s plan to launch ExitAction in New Zealand.

“Ms Street has so far avoided the issue with a classic side-step,” said Matthew Jansen, Secretary of the Care Alliance. “That is not nearly good enough.

ExitAction is a lethally reckless idea that shows complete arrogance and an utter contempt for the law. Given the close links in New Zealand between Exit International and the Voluntary Euthanasia Society, we all need to know exactly where Ms Street stands. She should say that it is deadly wrong. No ifs, no buts and no excuses.”
