Thank you to everyone who emailed their MP asking them to attend the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Dying Well’s parliamentary event to hear experts from a number of countries speak against introducing assisted suicide. There was a good turnout of MPs at the event.
Baroness Meacher’s assisted suicide Bill will likely have its Second Reading in the House of Lords on 22 October, and the pro-assisted suicide lobby have been further increasing pressure on peers to support this dangerous bill. This has included many members of the public writing to peers with personal stories that make a strong case for introducing assisted suicide.
Peers need to know that any assisted suicide law would be fundamentally unsafe and that now is the time to invest in better palliative and end-of-life care instead.
We are asking for members of the public to send in their compelling personal stories of the powerful benefits of palliative and end-of-life care, and of the dangers of assisted suicide.
If you, or someone you know, has a compelling personal testimony, please click the button below to find out more about what we are looking for and to provide full details of your story using our easy-to-use tool.
Any story, no matter how big or small it might seem, could be critical to the fight against assisted suicide in the Lords. These positive experiences of end-of-life care and negative experiences around assisted suicide will be very helpful in shaping the views of peers on this bill and convincing them to reject this extreme and dangerous proposal.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
