JOIN THE FIGHT TO PROTECT OUR LIVES!
Not Dead Yet UK supported by many other Disabled People’s Organisations will protest against Rob Marris’ MP Assisted Suicide Bill while it is being debated in the House of Commons. We need to stop the Bill now – it will be much more difficult at a later stage.
We need EVERYONE WHO CAN to support us in responding peacefully, in large numbers, to this campaign so that Parliament is left in no doubt that assisted suicide is not the answer.
Many people who are also personally affected by the Assisted Suicide Bill’s contents cannot join us outside the house of Commons. There are other ways you can help. Contact you MP now and share your concern.
WHY PROTEST AGAINST THE ASSISTED SUICIDE BILL?
Many ‘terminally ill’ and disabled people are deeply concerned about the proposed changes to the law on assisted suicide. We will not gain rights, we will lose rights! If the Assisted Suicide Bill becomes law, our lives will be less protected, and our sense of vulnerability will be increased. Disabled People’s Organisations the BMA and many others are opposed to this Bill and are agreed that what disabled people need is the resources to live as independently as possible and the best palliative care possible when we need it.
We shall be gathering between 9:00 and 9:30am ready for the MP’s arrival at 10am.
The vote is due to take place at 2:30pm and and we will remain until we know the result.
Remember you will be outside all day so come prepared! We can provide T Shirts, placards unless you have your own!
Please share this notice, join us on 11th Sept.
