MP withdraws euthanasia bill after pressure from Labour Party colleagues

A bill to legalise voluntary euthanasia in New Zealand has been withdrawn amid fears it would become a political football. Labour MP Maryan Street (left) withdrew her End of Life Choice Bill on 26 September before the member's bill ballot saying that she didn’t want it debated in election year. She claimed that the move was ‘simply pragmatism’ and that she ‘absolutely’ planned to put it back in the ballot after the election.
