Assisted dying: the harm in helping.

“Making assisted dying legal would alter the way society weighs the value of human life forever”.

In a comment piece for The Guardian, MP and former doctor Sarah Wollaston reveals why she is opposed to the legalisation of physician-assisted suicide. “If society normalises such decisions about life and death, how easy would it be to slide from believing it acceptable to allow doctors to prescribe lethal cocktails for their patients in exceptional circumstances to feeling it strange or even immoral that such patients be allowed to live?”, Dr Wollaston asks.
