National Party Deputy Leader Paula Bennett supports End of Life Choice

  • April 10, 2019

National Party Deputy Leader Paula Bennett has today come out showing strong support for the End of Life Choice Bill, which will face its second reading in Parliament at the end of May. 

Hon Paula Bennett was asked her position on TVNZ Breakfast, and quickly followed up her comments by tweeting her position saying, "I believe in people having the choice to end their life with dignity under strict conditions which I believe the Bill does have."

She is the highest profile member of the National Party to pledge her support and says she made her decision after hearing from many families who want choice and from her experience working in a rest home.
