A webinar titled 'Assisted Suicide: The Dangers' will consider the outcome of the potential legalising of assisted suicide in Scotland, and what you can do to help prevent it.

It takes place this Thursday (31 August) at 7:00pm and you can register here.

Liam McArthur MSP is expected to publish proposals to legalise assisted suicide later this year

This webinar will consider what those proposals will look like and, breaking them down, explain why assisted suicide is a very bad idea.

It aims 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.
