ACT is a party of tolerance and respect. New Zealanders should be free to live their lives without government interference as long as they aren’t hurting others. David Seymour authored the End of Life Choice Act and we have stood for a woman's right to choose on abortion.
ACT Leader David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill will give people with a terminal illness the choice of dying with dignity. Read more on End of Life Choice here.
ACT also supports:
- The right of women to make a personal choice on the issue of abortion. We believe New Zealand’s abortion laws are archaic and should be modernised.
- A referendum on the legalisation of cannabis. Prohibition of cannabis has failed, but we need to be sure any particular approach to legalisation will improve the status quo. Our priority should be harm reduction, especially keeping cannabis out of the hands of children.
