Brit MPs Continue To Weigh In On Assisted Suicide

Brit MPs continue to take sides on the current government’s debate on whether to legalize assisted suicide.
Assisted suicide is acceptable, says MP
THE STATE should not intervene in cases of assisted suicide, John Baron MP has claimed.
The Basildon and Billericay MP took part in a debate on assisted dying in the House of Commons last week describing the current situation as "legal fudge".
Mr Baron spoke in favour of greater patient choice and argued that the legal uncertainty surrounding the issue should end for the sake of patients and family alike.
"There is at present a huge legal fudge," he said. "The law makes assisted dying an offence, and yet chooses not to prosecute in certain cases.
"This creates massive uncertainty, which is unfair to patients and families alike." more
