(The Christian Institute)— Powerful arguments against euthanasia and assisted suicide have been put forward by a new campaign group ahead of an attempt to change the law in New Zealand.
The “16,000 voices” campaign focuses on people who made submissions to the New Zealand Parliament Health Select Committee on assisted suicide.
The committee was set up in response to calls for the legalisation of both assisted suicide and euthanasia.
Dr. Jane Silloway Smith, whose analysis of the submissions formed the basis for the campaign’s research, said, “Most Kiwis assume that the majority of the submissions given must have been in favor of euthanasia, but that’s not the case at all. Quite the opposite!”
