 Tory MP Seeks to Strengthen Law Against Assisted Suicide

Tory MP Nadine Dorries has made it clear that she is against assisted suicide and will make an attempt to have a private members' bill in the autumn so as to rule out a change in existing legislation.

She told the Daily Mail that assisted suicide was illegal, "Whilst a few may feel that they would personally benefit should assisted suicide become legal, many more would be subjected to an unbearable pressure and worry over which they would have no control," she added.

The Crown Prosecution Service has announced that it is drafting rules to clarify when someone can be prosecuted for assisting suicide. Ms Dorries wrote on her blog that the elderly may feel concerned if they learnt their doctor was involved in such cases.

"Unfortunately, talk of assisted suicide is becoming commonplace and the subject is now becoming mainstream. A worrying situation and one which may one day have consequences," she added.
