'Cause we're not dead yet! / 9 January 2015

Show your support for Not Dead Yet UK on Friday 16th January

The House of Lords will be in committee again to debate Lord Falconer’s Assisted Dying Bill on Friday 16th January 2015. They will be specifically looking at amendments concerning the definition of terminal illness and the role of doctors in 'assisted death'.

Not Dead Yet UK (NDYUK) will once again be showing its opposition and its strength by gathering outside the Houses of Parliament from around 0800 hrs until 1300 hrs at the latest.  

One of the principle organisors Liz Carr asks:

"Please do your best to join us on the day and let us know if you have ideas for how we can make our point more effectively. We cannot let this change in the law take place. Please join in and make your voices heard".

It would help NDYUK if you would register on their website in order to receive their newsletter and other important information about forthcoming events etc.

I HAVE PROGRESSIVE MS. I DO NOT WANT TO LIVE ONCE I NO LONGER RECOGNISE THOSE PEOPLE I LOVE, OR HAVE A SYMPTOM I CANNOT BEAR, OR A COMBINATION OF THESSE TWO CONDITIONS. IF I AM NOT ABLE TO KILL MYSELF IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, I WOULD LIKE SOMEONE I TRUST TO DO SO. I THEREFORE SUPPORT THIS BILL.
