*****NOT DEAD YET UK PRESS RELEASE*****

NOEL CONWAY TO TAKE CALL FOR ASSISTED SUICIDE TO THE SUPREME COURT

Following Not Dead Yet UK’s successful intervention in Mr Conway’s attempts to change the law on Assisted Suicide last year we were saddened but not surprised that he is to take his case further.

We will be seeking permission to intervene again as our position on Assisted Suicide has not changed. We maintain the legalisation of Assisted Suicide would be a dangerous and possibly fatal move for all disabled people in the U.K. While we understand and empathise with Mr Conway’s attempts to mitigate any future suffering we believe that current suicide law is essential to protect disabled and non-disabled people alike in death. To change the law for one section of society would negatively effect the relationship between society and disability, suicide prevention and palliative care as well as the relationship between doctors and their patients.

Not one organisation run by and for disabled people supports attempts to change the law.

More news as it develops.
