Killing the old and infirm could become law!

Please read Paulinus’ shocking post about the End of Life Choices (Scotland) Bill, which, he notes to be a euphemism for killing the unwell. Please do write to the MSP, Margot MacDonald, and express your concerns.

It is a very sensitive area, when all is considered. However, despite deep and profound compassion for the suffering of others, we cannot allow it to become lawful to kill off the aged, the sick or infirm. Please please please respond before the public consultation end on Monday 9 March.

Measured responses are best, and please note the distinction between euthanasia and electing not to partake of a particular treatment. The Parliament must be made to see that "assisted dying" is not the answer.
