Perspective 29.1.23 - Perspective this week debates the pros and cons of introducing legislation to allow assisted dying.
Sunday, 29 January 2023 - 50 minutes
As the consultation ends on Dr Alex Allinson’s bid to introduce a law to enable terminally ill adults to end their own life, Perspective this week debates the pros and cons of introducing legislation in this very difficult area. Should you have the right to decide how and when your life ends? With such rights come immense responsibilities too - are we ready to accept and indeed cope with the pressures and unforeseen consequences associated with rights to assisted dying. Not often I can say this but Perspective really is a matter of life and death this week!
