Should Kiwis have the right to die with 'dignity'?
Public submissions for the parlimentary inquiry into euthanasia closed on February 1, 2016.
The inquiry has canvassed public opinion and will look into international cases before making a decision on whether a law change is needed in New Zealand.
In September 2015, ACT leader David Seymour introduced a bill to legalise voluntary euthanasia, following a landmark right-to-die case from Lecretia Seales, the 42-year-old Wellington lawyer, who died of natural causes.
Her legal battle reignited the right to die with dignity debate.
What are your views?
Should our government look into a law change around terminally ill people choosing to end their own lives?
How did you, or do you, think you would feel if a close relative battling illness asked you to assist them in ending their own life?
Do you think the government should step in and make changes, or is this an issue that should not be up for debate?
