SuicideInquiry.nz is an independent project by Euthanasia-Free NZ Inc. to help facilitate public participation in the current Health Select Committee investigation.
Euthanasia-Free NZ is a nationwide, secular, non-profit organisation that informs the public about the unintended consequences and wider implications of legal assisted suicide and euthanasia. One significant implication of such legislation is that it contradicts and undermines suicide prevention.
Euthanasia-Free NZ is a member of the Care Alliance, a group of individuals and organisations who want better conversations about dying in New Zealand. We say “yes” to caring for suffering and vulnerable people, but we say “no” to legal voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide, because such laws would be unnecessary and unsafe. Other members of the Care Alliance include Hospice New Zealand, Australian & New Zealand Society of Palliative Medicine Aotearoa, Palliative Care Nurses New Zealand, the New Zealand Health Professionals Alliance, The Salvation Army, Family First New Zealand, Not Dead Yet Aotearoa, and others.
