Euthanasia Alert

Posted by Joseph on 24 March, 2012

Dear All,

Following the spectacular failure of Lord Falconer’s Commission on Assisted Dying the Euthanasia lobby are making a more subtle attempt to open the door for Assisted Suicide. Richard Ottoway MP, a leading pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia MP and Patron of the Voluntary Euthanasia Society (now called Dignity in Dying) has been given time for a House of Commons debate on Assisted Suicide on the afternoon of Tuesday March 27th, the day that Parliament rises for the Easter recess. It is likely that many MPs will leave early to return to their constituencies. This is a well-known Parliamentary trick to try and ensure a majority for the motion’s sponsors. The Motion to be debated has been crafted to focus on the February 2010 guidelines published by the Director of Public Prosecutions and invites the Government to put the guidance on a statutory basis. This is a clear attempt to get round the 1961 Suicide Act in which Assisted Suicide is clearly made illegal, thus bringing in confusion and, they hope, leading to eventual decriminalisation.

There is ample evidence from those countries where such measures have been adopted of continual increase in the numbers who die without consent. In many cases these countries have nowhere near the support and facilities for the terminally ill provided in the UK, so the arguments that ‘others have led the way’ are completely without foundation.

Please email, telephone or write to your MP to remain in the House for the debate and vote against the motion. The address to write to is (MP’s name), House of Commons, Westminster, London SW1A 0AA, telephone 020 7219 3000 then ask for the MP by name or the MP’s Assistant. Email addresses can be found at http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/ Please encourage others to do likewise.

    This is diabolical and is a very grave threat to everyone, the church and society. This is Hitler raising his ugly head and we must fight this great evil with whatever we have and especially prayers to Our Blessed Lady who has the right to crush the head of satan..
