Legalise assisted dying
The ACT party has a private member's bill in the hat, but neither National nor Labour has the courage to deal with this issue. It's just a matter of time before we catch up to the more progressive societies and keep government out of people's private lives and stop telling them when they're allowed to die. Irrespective of what the Health Select Committee concludes, dying on your own terms is a fundamental human right and was never anyone else's business. It is an embarrassment to us all that we're forcing the elderly to import Nembutal from China.
