The majority of people (66.9 per cent) also supported the introduction of End of Life Directives – legal documents that outline a person’s wish for medically assisted death should the issue arise.
A Horizon Research poll released today found 62.9 per cent of respondents supported the move, 12.3 per cent were opposed.
The poll involved 2969 adults who self-selected to participate online between July 5 and 20.
It has a margin of error of 1.8 per cent.
Horizon polls have had a few question marks but this is quite a strong lean towards support.
