NZME Health Central: Watch the full debate - Bill English, David Seymour, Dr Leonie Herx, Claire Freeman talk End of Life Choice Bill in the ChalkTalks panel

Watch the full-length Health Central ChalkTalks panel discussion on the End of Life Choice Bill from the ticketed and sold-out event on Wednesday 3 April 2019. While the Health Central ChalkTalks panel discussion on the End of Life Choice Bill raised more questions than it did answers, it is clear that this is the conversation we need to be having.

Panelists included Former Prime Minister Sir Bill English, Dr Leonie Herx, Claire Freeman, David Seymour, Kerri Nuku of NZNO, and euthanasia advocate Dr Jack Havill.


Claire Freeman (Ngāpuhi) is a PhD student at AUT with a Masters in Health Science from Otago University. She is a disability advocate, social influencer, blogger and youth worker. Claire is a former euthanasia advocate but now speaks out against End of Life Choice Bill. She herself is a tetraplegic and multiple suicide survivor who, three years ago, was advised by her NZ psychiatrist and a psychologist to pursue assisted suicide or euthanasia overseas. She lives to tell the tale in the documentary (below) from #DefendNZ released Wednesday 3 April. She was a speaker in the Health Central Chalk Talks Discussion on the End of Life Choice Bill this evening in Wellington.
