Right to Life is right behind James Yang and the team at The Black Box, who are producing a short film ‘Help’, to help New Zealanders become informed before making their decision in the coming September referendum.
As a precursor to the making of this movie Black Box has produced the following short clip which exposes some of the very real dangers of the End of Life Choice Bill which if passed is going to drastically alter the way New Zealand treats life and death. The following is some information provided by Black Box regarding the movie they are making .

Will you help New Zealanders live or help them die? That’s a question we will all have to answer at the referendum for The End of Life Choice Act that will take place this year concerning legalisation of euthanasia.
The Black Box film crew is creating an emotionally gripping short film to let New Zealanders feel and recognize the dangers of the bill that thousands of Kiwi doctors have spoken against, instead of simply assuming that the outcome of over two years of heated debates and disagreements in the parliament is a perfectly safe act. The crew has the script, the key crew, and social media pages with a total of over 50,000 followers who have enthusiastically agreed to share and promote their project online. Now all they need is your help to eliminate the possibility of losing someone dear to us as a victim of the End of Life Choice Act.
Written over the course of a single, enlightening overnight experience in hospital, the short film, Help, is the proof we need that care and compassion could reduce our need for such an act in Aotearoa.
If you are just as worried and frustrated about how many New Zealanders are still unaware of the dangers of the End of Life Choice Act, please join the The Black Box Crew in their mission to help the vulnerable live rather than die.
