WATCH: Assisted dying in Canada - a warning to Scotland

The dangers of assisted suicide were highlighted last night (13 June) by Ramona Coelho, a doctor based in Canada which has Medical Assistance in Dying.

She shares harrowing accounts of how the most vulnerable people in society, including the disabled, the elderly and those with mental health issues - are particularly at risk.

Tell MSPs to oppose Assisted Suicide for Scotland. You can submit your views to The Scottish Parliament here. Submissions should be made by Friday 16 August. 

Workshop: Called to Care, Not to Kill

The Assisted Dying Bill could be law in Scotland soon.

The bill’s proposer, Liam McArthur MSP, claims he has sufficient MSPs to vote for it.

Following the Bishops of Scotland recent Pastoral Letter, can you help your parish by contributing to a short life campaign network?

All you need is a genuine concern about the issue and willingness to work with others, involvement in previous church activity is not essential.

By the end of this workshop you'll be able to engage with, and inform others, in plain language, about key concerns arising from Liam McArthur’s bill.

The workshop will provide you with information and materials to support conversations around these key concerns.

This initiative will be supported by the Campaign Against Assisted Dying group (CAAD), who have experience in such development work, in conjunction with the Archdiocesan Pro-Life Office.

CAAD will provide materials to support engagement and information sharing.

In addition to planning and publicity material, they also provide ongoing advice and support.
