Joint Committee on the Draft Mental Incapacity Bill Written Evidence

64.Multiple submissions—Example 3 (MIB 429)

  I wish to protest about the proposed legislation (above). I am a great admirer of the Hospice movement, which enables the sick to die with dignity. Why take away from those working in these caring institutions their loving and caring vocation?

  This is murder, asking medical people who took up their profession to care for the sick and infirm to terminate their existence. If the intention is to end life then there are more humane means of committing murder than denying the sick food and drink.

  This government has stated that it is completely opposed to euthanasia, how then can this Bill become law?
