Why Not? | Making sense of the case against assisted suicide
Speaker: Dr Rod McLeod, Dr Huhana Hickey, Sam Bloore
Why shouldn’t New Zealanders be able to legally access assisted suicide or euthanasia?
There are many compelling answers to that question, but very few have been heard publicly in the current media environment. The Care Alliance, in association with Maxim Institute looks to bring some balance to the discussion with two public panel information nights, held in Christchurch (MC’d by social commentator and mental health advocate Mike King) and Auckland in the first week of September.
With a panel of experts in fields like medicine/palliative care, disability rights, bioethics and cultural analysis, and ample time for audience questions, this event will clarify the case against assisted suicide, leaving you well equipped to answer the question “Why not?” for yourself.
