Maggie Barry on euthanasia

From Morning Report, 8:25 am on 14 November 2019

A vote on euthanasia will go before the public during the 2020 election, after David Seymour's End of Life Choice Bill passed its third reading.

The Bill allows for people suffering unbearably from a terminal illness that is likely to end their life within six months to request a medically-assisted death.

It passed 69 votes to 51 on Wednesday night.

National MP Maggie Barry is a staunch opponent of the legislation and speaks to Corin Dann.
