Alex Penk responds to Maryan Street’s op-ed in Stuff newspapers
In response to Maryan Street’s op-ed that predicted the End of Life Choice Bill would pass this year, CEO Alex Penk writes:
It’s only human for our predictions to be coloured by our desires and, as president of the End-of-Life Choice Society (formerly the Voluntary Euthanasia Society), it’s perhaps not surprising that Street’s crystal ball appears to have given her the answer she wanted. But legalising euthanasia and assisted suicide is one of the most consequential issues that Parliament will consider this year, and a bit less crystal ball-gazing and a bit more attention to the facts would do us all a favour.

MPs should examine facts on euthanasia, rather than crystal balls
