FATE has joined forces with the Humanist Society of Scotland, the Parliamentary Office of Margo MacDonald MSP and Orbit Communications as part of a major campaign to support Margo in her renewed efforts to change the law on assisted suicide in Scotland.
A small steering group represented the society at a meeting in Edinburgh on Tuesday 7th January to plan the strategy.
The main conclusion that emerged was that ordinary folk are the backbone for getting publicity and support for the Bill, which comes before the Scottish Parliament this year.
Keep an eye open for the new LifeDeathChoice website hosted by the Humanist Society of Scotland, where you can find out more about the Bill, what you can do to get involved and where you can express your views.
There will be a press launch at Holyrood at 1pm on Thursday 30th January. All members of the press are welcome — please contact our Press Officer, Sheila Duffy, for further details.
