Update 9 May 9 May 2019
Initially the Second reading on the End of Life Choice Bill was expected in early April, since Parliament's Justice Committee was due to publish their report by 27 March.
Their report was postponed to 9 April and the Second Reading was then expected to start as early as 1 May.
However, Parliament dealt with other Bills on the 1st so the next opportunity for the Second Reading is on Wednesday 22 May. If there would not be enough time to complete the debate and vote on this day, it would likely be on Wednesday 19 June.
If this Bill gets voted through at Second Reading, DefendNZ will need to continue their efforts against this Bill during the next stage, during which amendments will be debated. Since the proposed amendments are varied and extensive, it looks like this stage could take several months.
It has therefore become necessary to extend the time frame on this page and communicate the specific goal of $70,000.
Thanks very much to everyone who has already chipped in!
