Assisted Suicide Webinar: Tuesday 23rd November at 6:30pm
The webinar, hosted by Care Not Killing and Not Dead Yet UK, aims to deepen understanding of the issues involved with assisted suicide, euthanasia and the potential future impacts of Liam McArthur’s proposed Assisted Dying for Terminally Ill Adults (Scotland) Bill. If interested email email@example.com
Assisted Suicide Public Consultation
It is important that as many people as possible respond to this consultation. We must send a strong message to Mr. McArthur, MSPs and the Scottish Government: that assisted suicide is a dangerous and unethical practice that must never be legalised in Scotland or any other part of the UK. The consultation is running until Wednesday 22nd December 2021. Please complete the questionnaire as soon as you can and encourage others to do the same. https://www.spuc.org.uk/assisteddyingscotlandconsultation
