Reclaiming Our Futures Alliance briefing on the Assisted Dying bills 2015

Information on the flaws in the current bill, why assisted suicide is an issue of disability equality and why it is important for DDPOs to oppose legalisation

There are currently two, essentially identical, bills to legalise assisted suicide before Parliament. Lord Falconer’s Assisted Dying bill had its First Reading in the House of Lords on 4 June and Rob Marris’ Assisted Dying No.2 Bill was introduced into the House of Commons on 24 June. Marris’ bill will have its Second Reading debate in the House of Commons on 11 September when Parliament returns from its Summer recess. For the first time in years MPs will get to vote on this highly controversial subject.
