Voice your Choice

The current law is unclear, uncompassionate and discriminatory. At present the only legal option for hastening death is voluntarily refusing food and fluid, essentially starving and dehydrating to death. This can cause great distress and suffering for those dying and their wider family and friends.

By signing this petition you are making your voice heard and sending a clear message to MSPs & MPs that the law must change.

If we are to make UK laws more compassionate then we need a critical mass of the public to ensure this, we hope you will join us.

 

‘I support the option of medically assisted dying which should be available to all mentally competent adults with either a terminal illness or an incurable condition causing hopeless and unbearable suffering with no reasonable alternative to relieve it, provided this is their own persistent request.’

We would love to keep you updated on our work and campaign. If you confirm that you are happy for us to contact you by email or SMS we will only get in touch when we need your support in the instance of a consultation, bill or petition. We will not send any marketing correspondence and you will not be subscribed to our newsletter unless you choose this separately.

If you tell us why you support assisted dying we will publish your comments on our website anonymously.

Your personal details will be stored in a secure online database and will not be shared with any third parties. If at any point you would like your details to be removed from our pledge please contact membership@friends-at-the-end.org.uk to request this.
