Do New Zealanders really want a change on assisted dying laws?

Tue, 01 Sep, 2015

Yes. Depending on the wording of the question, polling of adult New Zealanders have typically shown around 65%-75% support in favour of legalising assisted dying with appropriate safeguards. More recently, a Reid Research Poll in July showed 71% support and 24% opposition, and a Colmar Brunton Poll in July showed 75% support and 20% opposition. A poll of 2800 persons commissioned from Curia this month on assisted dying shows 66% supporting and 20% opposed.
