It would seem that under the current government, the Labour Party, the right to self-determination or the right to elect a death will be brought into law.

This raises the question as to whether or not the ACC will provide the funding for a claimant to end their lives when the claimant finds life too hard to live because of their injuries. I think it is a given that the termination of life would come about by way of a medical process and as such would come under the current ACC legislation regarding treatment to end or at least stabilise the incapacity.

As the ACC operates on the basis of the needs of the greater number exceed the needs of the few this new legislation and the ACCs role in assisting the new legislation would seem to supported by ACC policy.

Any thoughts?

No! Some things are private. Away from your prying eyes.

Mini because you cannot remain silent you reveal your thoughts and then blame others who then make comment on those thoughts. Silence is the best form of security
