You may have seen in the media recently that pro-assisted suicide MPs are making it clear they are going to attempt to change the law on assisted suicide.
To ensure MPs are aware of the serious issues with introducing assisted suicide, the All-Party Parliamentary Pro-Life Group have organised a meeting for MPs on assisted suicide on Thursday 10 September.
In this meeting, MPs will have the opportunity to hear from those who have experienced the harsh reality of the legalisation of assisted suicide in the Netherlands and North America.
Speakers will include Professor Theo Boer and Wesley Smith. Professor Boer was previously a strong supporter of euthanasia and assisted suicide, serving on a Dutch Regional Review Committee on Euthanasia, reviewing cases of euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide to determine if they took place legally. This experience resulted in Professor Boer becoming one of the most vocal critics of the Dutch euthanasia law. Wesley Smith, a trained attorney, will discuss his experiences of Oregon and Washington – where assisted suicide is legal – highlighting the dangers and unintended consequences that have occurred.
