You can now read the Anscombe Bioethics Centre Submission to the Health and Social Care Committee Inquiry into ‘Assisted Dying’ – Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide (EAS) – composed by our Director, Professor David Albert Jones.
As we stated in our previous comment on this Inquiry, it is really important that as many people as possible submit responses to it. To aid public engagement, the Anscombe Bioethics Centre has produced a Briefing to help anyone interested in responding, whether as an individual or as an organisation. The more who do so, particularly citing the increasing evidence of the negative effects of euthanasia and assisted suicide around the world, the better informed Parliamentarians may be.
We hope that our Submission will be helpfully illustrative as to how to respond in terms of content and manner, and encourage as many people as possible to contribute their own submission to the Inquiry, so as to properly inform public and Parliamentary debate on this issue, and help maintain a more just and compassionate society.
