promoting care, opposing euthanasia

Ahead of the 2021 Scottish Parliament elections, we launched a dedicated campaign website - - and video, aimed at forcing candidates to confront the reality that the future impacts of legalising assisted suicide may be hard to think about - but easy to see:

The late independent MSP Margo MacDonald launched a previous bill to permit assisted suicide for Scots (Assisted Suicide (Scotland) Bill) in 2013. Following evidence gathering by the Health and Sport Committee - including contributions by our then-Campaign Director and (below) our now-CEO - and Stage One debate on 27 May 2015, MSPs threw out the Bill by a margin of 82-36. An earlier attempt in 2010 also failed.
