My Death, My Decision?

The availability of Assisted Dying for those approaching the end of life or in unrelenting suffering is a particular concern for humanists, and one of Humanists UK’s principle campaigning areas. Phil Cheatle, the Lead Campaign Commentator of the campaign group "My Death, My Decision" came to speak to us in April about the current state of the campaign to legalise it.

My Death, My Decision works closing with HUK on this issue, and Phil is an HUK member, so the talk was a really useful insight into the progress that is being made. Of course, he had to do very little to persuade us of the need for change, but it was useful to hear how the case is being made and how common criticisms of the need for assisted dying can be answered.
