The Assisted Dying Bill is most certainly a heated debate and has been for many years, so lets discuss.
Do I support the Assisted Dying Bill?
YES I CERTAINLY DO!
On a personal basis I have first hand experience of watching my sister die a slow agonising death over many weeks and its something that has haunted to this day.
You never get over watching someone die in such a terrible way knowing you can do nothing to help ease their pain.
Watching as their quality of life and dignity is stripped away from them on a daily basis!
If assisted dying was law she would never have suffered in the way did and nor would her loved ones she eventually left behind who have to deal with those images for their rest of their lives!
We do not allow animals to suffer when they are in pain but we allow people to suffer agonies we often can not even begin to comprehend!
Yes it is one that needs to be carefully addressed to ensure that it is not open to abuse but it is one that needs to be debated properly and effectively in parliament.
I also believe that this is to big an issue that affects everyone and that means it should be put to a referendum to allow the public to vote on what they want.
