Assisted suicide – a personal choice or a criminal act?

Tuesday 30th June Doors open at 6.00pm, debate starts at 6.30pm

Helping someone to take their own life is not only illegal but simply wrong, or is it a humane and respectful response to the rights of the individual.

Martin Johnson RN, MSc, PhD is professor in Nursing, University of Salford and editor, Nurse Education Today “It is an individual’s choice to decide how they are cared for. This includes being able if they wish, to end their life because of chronic and incurable pain and suffering.”

Dr Hans-Christian Raabe MD MRCP MRCGP DRCOG is a Manchester GP and medical coordinator of the Council for Heath and Wholeness “The real danger is that once you accept killing as the solution to a single problem, then what is to stop it being as the answer to hundreds of other problems?”
