Assisted suicide in Scotland

Dear Parishoner

There are less than two weeks left for people to respond to the consultation on Liam McArthur MSP’s bill to legalise assisted suicide in Scotland.

It is vitally important that people respond to this consultation. If this bill were to pass into law doctors would be authorised to prescribe drugs with the sole purpose of killing the patient, not healing them. For the first time in Scotland, or in any other part of the UK, suicide would be encouraged for some people, rather than seen as a tragedy to be prevented.

“A public consultation has been launched on a bill proposed by Liam McArthur MSP to legalise assisted suicide in Scotland.

It is important that as many people as possible respond to this consultation. We must send a strong message to Mr. McArthur, MSPs and the Scottish Government: that assisted suicide is a dangerous and unethical practice that must never be legalised in Scotland or any other part of the UK.

The consultation is running until Wednesday 22 December 2021. Please complete the questionnaire as soon as you can and encourage others to do the same. You can find resources to help you do this at
