Euthanasia for the Terminally Ill
Those who sign this petition believe that the right to a dignified death for the terminally ill should be the right of every British citizen.
This petition believes that families should be able to respect their spouse's personal decision without the risk of criminal conviction or risk the psychological effects of having to euthanise their loved ones. Allowing a safe, honourable passing.
This petition also believes that the majority should not be denied in a Democracy which consistently polls strongly in favour of this motion.
This petition believes in a comprehensive set of safety nets and regulation on the issue to avoid the euthanising of those who do not wish to die,who can not defend themselves and to avoid the conditions of some unsavoury clinics which have been discovered in Europe.
The spirit of this petition is to protect those most vulnerable in society and legislation should be designed as such for both those who choose to end their life and those who choose not to.

There's already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue.
You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.
