A new poll has shown that 86% of Scots are in favour of the Scottish Parliament should examine the issue of assisted dying, as there is currently no legislation covering suicide or assisted dying.
“The law as it stands is unjust, unfair and unsustainable, forcing Scots facing a bad death to make agonising choices including travelling to Switzerland to die or taking matters into their own hands rather than suffering slow, painful deaths.
“This is not acceptable in a modern society and should not be tolerated any further. It is a priority for the people and as such a priority for this parliament.” – Ally Thomson, Director, Dignity in Dying Scotland.
