‘Assisted suicide could be dangerous’ warn campaigners
As the Commission on Assisted Dying releases a report calling for assisted suicide to be legalised in Britain, opposition groups are also having their say, pointing out the inherent dangers and health-risks associated with suicide of any form.
‘This investigation is being presented as an objective and independent review, but the truth is that it is not.’ said Dr Peter Saunders, campaign director of Care Not Killing, ‘The real story is that assisted suicide is extremely dangerous, and our own investigations have found that legalising it could lead to up to 13,000 deaths a year.’
‘I don’t want to put words into anybody’s mouth, but I think these figures speak for themselves, and anybody considering getting a friend or family member to help them end their life needs to be fully aware of all the facts.’
‘If they knew the dangers involved in suicide then I’m sure they’d think twice.’Click to send this story to a friend
