I’ve argued that in NZ, euthanasia would quickly become a means to get rid of the poor & weak because in our recent past, National attempted to create hit squads whose job it was to cut off life saving medical to the poor. Add to that recent past is our deplorable mental health system, prisoner safety, CYFs child abuse, and historic abuse and we have a neoliberal public service in NZ whose job is to hurt the vulnerable, not help them.
So what would happen if euthanasia was legalised in NZ?
Well this is David Seymour who is pushing for the euthanasia…
…would you really trust a person with this level of compassion to legalese euthanasia?
