The Assisted Dying Bill devalues the lives of terminally ill and disabled people.

A letter to The Telegraph argues that a change to the current legislation would put pressure on the most vulnerable in our society

The Telegraph has reported on a letter by a group of Peers and charity campaigners, who have said that a change in the law on assisted suicide will lead disabled people – and other vulnerable people, including the elderly – to feel under pressure to end their lives.

The joint letter to The Daily Telegraph comes as Lord Falconer tables his Private’s Member’s bill, the latest attempt to legalise assisted suicide.
