DPA End Of Life Choice Bill Submission

We submitted our response to the End of Life Choice Bill to the Justice Committee of Parliament on March 6.

DPA does not hold a position on euthanasia, therefor our submission did not address the wider issue of euthanasia.  Instead we responded to the Bill from a disability rights perspective.

We expressed our concern about the way the Bill is constructed: that disabled people do not have the same rights and protections as non-disabled people under the Bill in its current form.
