Assisted Suicide: The Dangers

Later this year Liam McArthur MSP is expected to publish proposals to legalise assisted suicide in Scotland.

Join us for this webinar to consider what those proposals will look like and, breaking them down, explain why assisted suicide is a very bad idea.

We aim to equip you with the key arguments against assisted suicide and provide you with advice on how to share your concerns most effectively with MSPs.
