An Open Letter From Religious Leaders On The End Of Life Choice Act

Many of the religious leaders of Aotearoa New Zealand – including Rev Charles Hewlett, who heads the Baptist whanau of churches – signed an open letter to voters on September 21 urging caution at the harm the End of Life Choice Act will cause. Their primary concern is about protecting the most vulnerable and the possible unintended consequences of the Act. They also discuss the lack of safeguards, including not needing to tell a family member, and concerns about the stand-down period.

Their letter was published as a full-page advertisement in the Auckland Herald on Sunday 20 September 2020.
