Thank you to everyone who has used our new MP candidate database and shared it with friends. Some of our supporters said that it was not clear that they had to click through to the profile for each candidate to find out if they have signed the pledge. We have taken this feedback on and updated the user interface so this is more clear. We will be updating the platform daily as more MP candidates sign the Both Lives Pledge.
NEW EMAIL FUNCTION – ASK YOUR CANDIDATES WHERE THEY STAND ON ASSISTED SUICIDE
In the next parliament, there is likely to be an attempt to introduce assisted suicide.
This afternoon we have launched a new feature that will allow you to write to your MP candidates asking them to pledge to oppose any attempts to introduce assisted suicide or euthanasia, and support palliative care for people at the end of their lives.
Click the button below to write to your candidates now.
We have launched a separate pledge on this issue as there are many candidates who take a different view on assisted suicide from that which they take on abortion.
Keeping the pledge on this separate means you, as a voter, will have clear information on exactly where your MP candidates stand on both issues. It will also be useful for our public affairs team to have this data on new candidates so we know who is opposed to assisted suicide among the new parliamentary intake.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
