Dame Tariana Turia has added her voice to those opposing euthanasia in a campaign launched on Sunday.

It comes ahead of a second vote on David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill.

Hamilton woman Kylee Black lives with a rare connective-tissue disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

“There is literally a piece of my DNA missing, so there is no cure,” she said.

She features in a campaign called ‘Defend New Zealand’, which raises the concerns of those with terminal illnesses and disabilities about the pressure euthanasia may put on them.

“All of a sudden I feel like well, maybe, I have to make that decision.”

The campaign includes the voices of community leaders, like Former Associate Health Minister Dame Tariana Turia.

“No one ever said to me ‘I want to be assisted to die’, they want to be assisted to live.”

Voices for and against euthanasia have already been heard in a record 37,000 submissions made to Parliament on the End of Life Bill.
