Parliament wants to hear what you think about the End of Life Choice Bill
Have your say before 20th February 2018
Let the Justice select committee know that you support the End of Life Choice Bill. Tell them why. Here are a few reasons why people support it to trigger your thoughts:
- It could be that you witnessed one of your loved ones die a painful, harrowing death, pleading for an assisted death but unable to get it because it’s against the law.
- It could be that you’re worried about your own death – perhaps you wouldn’t want to suffer in dying, so you want a change to the law.
- It could be that you’ve witnessed someone being assisted to die in a country where assisted dying is legal and you saw they were at peace because of it.
- It could be that you come from a country where assisted dying is legal and you know from experience that assisted dying is safe.
- It could be that you’ve read the Bill and you think there are enough safeguards to prevent abuse, coercion or error.
- It could be that you’ve discussed this with your doctor and your doctor would be favourable towards assisted dying if it were legal.
Whatever your reason, tell your story and say it in your own words! Thank you for your help.
