Scotland's Assisted Suicide Bill is an offence to our Human Dignity
The Editor of the Daily Mail in Scotland has written a strong critique of a Bill brought forward by independent MSP, Margo MacDonald, to introduce assisted suicide for terminally ill patients, reports Christian Concern for our Nation.
The Bill was launched by Ms MacDonald, who has Parkinson's disease, in November 2013 and is currently in stage 1 of consideration by the Lead Committee on Health and Sport.
Writing in the Guardian, Kevin McKenna said: "MacDonald's previous death bill, introduced in 2010, was soundly defeated in Holyrood by 85 votes to 16. Essentially, though, despite a bewildering and meaningless set of new safeguards, the new version of the bill remains the same and carries the same contempt for the sanctity of all human life."
