In 2010 MSP Margo MacDonald's "End of Life Assistance (Scotland)" Bill was rejected by the Scottish Parliament by 85 votes against 16.  In 2012 Ms MacDonald returned to the charge with a consultation paper for her "Assisted Suicide (Scotland)" Bill.  It is expected that a bill along these lines wil be presented to the Holyrood Parliament during 2013.
