The future impacts of State-assisted dying
You’ll no doubt be aware that campaigners for ‘State-assisted dying’ are calling for a change in the law to allow assisted suicide in Scotland, citing examples from other countries where it has been legalised. As one of your constituents, I believe it’s vital for politicians to consider the future impacts that a change of this magnitude could have on Scotland.
We all want to help people who experience pain and distress at the end of life, but political decisions can be disastrous for future generations. Some of the tragic consequences and dangerous trends are easy to see, because they’re already happening in these other countries.
