Euthanasia referendum: How the public plans to vote

From Morning Report, 7:56 am on 6 August 2020

In six weeks, one of the most significant pieces of law in New Zealand history may be voted in - by you.

The End of Life Choice Act 2019 will allow someone who is terminally ill and in unbearable pain with less than six months to live, to ask a medical professional for help to die.

That's only if more than 50 percent of voters tick 'yes' in the referendum, which is held at the same time as the general election.

RNZ reporter Eva Corlett took to the streets of Porirua, to see how people plan to vote.
