ASSISTED DYING BILL – Please write to a member of the House of Lord
The Bill to legalise “assisted dying” (meaning assisted suicide) will be debated in the House of Lords on 18 July 2014. There will be a free vote because it is not government legislation. If passed, this Bill would place vulnerable people at serious risk.
Please write before 18 July to a Peer to tell them your views, especially if you have direct experience of caring for a dying person, either as a family member or as a health or social care professional.
For more information, including details of how to write such a letter please visit here. Peers leading the opposition to the Bill are concerned about the number of “Dignity in Dying” supporters who are writing to the House of Lords. They are anxious that Peers receive more letters containing the opposite view.
