Guidelines On Assisted Suicide And Public Safety

EDM number 1158 in 2013-14, proposed by Fiona Bruce on 10/03/2014.
Categorised under the topic of Medical ethics.

That this House notes and draws to the attention of those wishing to change the law on assisted suicide, the remarks of the Minister of State at the Department of Justice, Lord Faulks, during a debate on 5 March 2014 in the House of Lords, that since the publication of the Guidelines of Assisted Suicide four cases were referred onwards for prosecution for murder or serious assault; believes that the emergence of these cases shows how well the current guidelines are working; and reasserts its belief that to relax the current law would add further to the number of unlawful killings and murders and that the most important considerations are the protection of vulnerable people and public safety.

This motion has been signed by a total of 38 MPs.
