Not a fair comparison

This is unfair on Jacinda, and unfair on the 75% of New Zealanders who do support euthanasia.

Simon has strong and sincere views on euthanasia, but people have sincere views the other way also.

Most people do not see euthanasia as comparable to suicide, especially suicide. The former is something generally reserved for those who are dying already or in unbearable pain and there would be a strict legal process to go through.

That is very different to people struggling with depression who kill themselves.

The reality is most people do understand the difference. That’s why there is 0% support for more youth suicide but 75% support for legalised euthanasia.
