Euthanasia: a 'barbaric' ask of medical professionals or an individual right?

As the general election draws closer, Marlborough’s senior citizens have weighed in on the polarising End of Life Choice Act.

The bill on assisted dying for the terminally ill would be one of two referendums put to the public at the general election, scheduled for October 17.

Grey Power Association health advocate Eleanor Kietzmann (right) had been working as a registered nurse for 40 years and found the idea of assisted dying “abhorrent”.

She opposed euthanasia on many grounds, but mainly as a health professional she believed it was wrong to take someone’s life.

Meanwhile, a group of five from Grey Power all supported the End of Life Choice Act, with some saying the bill did not go far enough in supporting the choices of terminally ill patients.
