Equipping Christians for the General Election

Where do the main parties stand on Assisted Suicide and End of Life issues?
Public Affairs

CARE believes that every life has value from its beginning at conception to its natural end and opposes assisted suicide.  We also call for greater access to high quality palliative care.  As the culture of individualism takes deeper root in our society with its stress on autonomy and choice in all aspects of life, including death, campaigns for assisted suicide have become louder.  Further information as to where CARE stands on Assisted Suicide and End of Life matters can be accessed here

Below are extracts from the manifestos of the larger political parties relating to end of life matters.
