Scotland MSP to Again Push Legalization of Assisted SuicideDr. Peter Saunders | Glasgow, Scotland | LifeNews.com | 5/1/12 12:27 PM
Today is the last day to respond to Margo Macdonald’s consultation on assisted suicide. The MSP is planning to bring another bill to the Scottish Parliament in an attempt to legalise assisted suicide just over a year after her last similar bill was overwhelmingly defeated by 85 votes to 16. Essentially this is a rerun of the same flawed and tired arguments.
Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition has published a good overview of her latest proposal’s many failings but I suspect most will just be objecting to the bill in principle.
I have reproduced below the submission of the Care Not Killing Alliance, representing over 40 professional groups, faith groups and human rights groups. It says it all. Brief and to the point.
