We understand that the Times and Sunday Times are supporting the latest attempt to change the law on assisted suicide.
They are backing a private member’s bill put forward by crossbench peer Baroness Meacher. The bill is scheduled to have its first reading later this week.
We would ask all of our supporters to raise their concerns by contacting the Editor of the Sunday Times.
Here is an extract from the newspaper article published on May the 23rd.
“Assisted dying is a delicate and sensitive issue. Some people are strongly in favour of it becoming legal in the UK, as it is already in a growing number of countries. Others feel strongly that it should not. Everybody, however, should agree that this is not an issue to be swept under the carpet indefinitely, and today The Sunday Times is launching a campaign to legalise assisted dying in this country.”
