Help MPs Hear Vital Arguments Against Assisted Suicide

The pressure to legalise assisted suicide grows ever stronger. So far, every attempt to change the law has been defeated. Campaigners for assisted suicide tried to use the courts to force Parliament to act, but have failed. Now, they are seeking to persuade new MPs of the merits of their cause. In particular, they are pushing for a review of the current law on assisted suicide in England and Wales.

At this cru­cial moment, we’re ask­ing for your help to counter this grow­ing threat.

It's so important that MPs hear from constituents like you who are opposed to assisted suicide and euthanasia. To help counter the pressure being put on MPs to support a review of the existing law, we're asking you to stand with us and let your MP know why you don't want the law to change.

Points to Make

Below you'll find some suggested points to make. Please use your own words as this will carry far more weight.

  • Let your MP know that the issue of assisted suicide is one of great concern to you personally.
  • Ask your MP to reject any move towards reviewing the current law because the law as it stands is working.
  • Say you are concerned that any change in the law would fundamentally alter the trust between doctors and their patients.
  • Point out that in places where assisted suicide and euthanasia are legal, there's clear evidence of the slippery slope, with rising numbers and expansions to the law.
  • Say you believe that rather than reviewing the current law on assisted suicide, the focus should be on improving investment in palliative care services so everyone can access it at the point of need.
  • Ask your MP to vote against any legislation which may be brought forward at Westminster.
