Seymour unfazed as doctors fight End of Life Choice Bill

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 24 June 2019

Those backing the End of Life Choice Bill are confident push back from doctors won't derail the bill's second reading on Wednesday.

David Seymour's bill would give people with a terminal illness the option of requesting doctor-assisted dying.

Over the weekend, an open letter signed by more than 1000 doctors declared that even if legalised, euthanasia is unethical.

RNZ political reporter Charlie Dreaver has the story.
