New short film looks at the Joffe bill - the first step towards legalising euthanasia in the UK...
The Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill seeks to allow doctors to assist a patient who is requesting suicide to do so. Those opposed to the bill - among them Care Not Killing - believe it will simply put vulnerable people at risk of early death.
The film includes interviews with doctors, disabled rights activists and ethicists, concentrating on the impact the bill would have on the vunerable elderly and terminally ill.
