Yes – we know that Christmas is just around the corner – and probably the last thing you want to do is think about euthanasia / assisted suicide.But the Select Committee considering David Seymour’s euthanasia bill (whose members interestingly ALL voted for euthanasia in the 1st Reading!) have set the deadline for submissions as soon as 20 February 2018.

Let’s disappoint them!So we’ve done all the ‘prep work’ for you. Our 16-page Submission Guideline resource contains:1. the key reasons why the current laws on suicide / assisted suicide / euthanasia should be maintained. This will help you get started with ideas for your submission2. a critique of the key part of the specific law change proposed by Seymour3. the key information you need to include, the ways you can send your submission in, and other relevant details.Q: I made a submission to the recent Inquiry. Do I need to make another submission to the Inquiry?A: YES! This is a separate consideration which involves a potential law changeQ: So can I use similar material to what I did in my previous submission?A: Absolutely, although we would encourage you to read our resource first to refresh your mind and to take into account the specifics of the proposed law changeQ. Just remind me – what’s the latest date I can make a submission?A: You have until 20 February 2018 (but why not do it this weekend!) Then you can have a total break in January. The beginning of the year can always be a bit chaoticQ. I’d like to make this info available to friends and family. Is there a printed pamphlet that I can distribute?A: Glad you asked!
