It’s important to let your local electorate and list MPs know what you think of the End of Life Choice Bill – even if you made a submission or have spoken to MPs about it earlier.

You can write them a letter (freepost to Parliament), send an email, phone their office – or send a message via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (social links below).

Support is available from hello@defendnz.co.nz or 0800 11 55 67.

When contacting an MP it helps to:

  • Be friendly and respectful.

  • Use DefendNZ as a conversation starter and ask what they thought of the videos.

  • Be concise, decide what’s most important to you, and tell a true story if you have one.

  • Avoid mentioning other controversial topics in the same conversation.


Third Reading MP Contact Update

On Wednesday 13 November 2019 Parliament will vote on the Third Reading of the End of Life Choice Bill - the final vote on whether it should become law. The vote is expected to be very close.  Please come to Parliament to watch from the gallery if you can. Updates will be posted on Facebook.

Could you please contact the MPs below to ask them to vote against the Bill? Some of them have stated that they are still undecided. Some may be swayed by the largest number of (friendly and single-issue) communications they receive before the vote. If you contacted an MP a while ago, please contact them again.

If you identify as Chinese, Indian, Pasifika or Māori, please feel free to contact the relevant MPs below. Otherwise, scroll down to see priority MPs to contact.

Important Tips:

  • Please open a new email window first - don't forward another message.

  • An email addressed to one MP is more likely to be read than a group email.

  • Be friendly, polite and respectful. Avoid angry words and threats. Please don't put any words in CAPITALS because it's interpreted as yelling.

  • Mention your occupation if relevant. Include a true story from your personal and professional life if you have one.

  • Be concise and brief. A paragraph or two would be enough.

  • Please keep it single-issue and refrain from mentioning other controversial issues in the same email.
