Kia ora tātou
This week I made a face to face submission at parliament. This was a first for me. The topic was David Seymour’s Euthanasia or assisted suicide Bill. With me was a young Wellington doctor, Caroline Newson, who works in acute psych medicine.
Check out my facebook page to see something of what I presented: BishopCharlesDrennan
Euthanasia would be a deeply regressive or backward step for New Zealand. We pride ourselves on being a progressive nation. This Bill points to the opposite. It is a cause for national shame or whakamā.
