WHAT WE STAND FOR
My Death, My Decision is a grassroots movement for assisted dying reform. We want a compassionate law on assisted dying that permits a medically assisted death to adults of sound mind who are terminally ill or intolerably suffering. We believe reform is necessary to reduce the suffering of individuals who are close to death, and, just as importantly, to give choice to those with incurable conditions who face years of constant pain or suffering that they find unbearable.
WHAT WE DO
WHY WE'RE CAMPAIGNING
One person a week goes to Switzerland from the UK for an assisted death – more than twice as many as a few years ago. Families have to let someone they love travel and die alone, or risk imprisonment for going with them. For many, it’s an impossibly difficult or expensive journey. We know there is a safe and compassionate alternative.
Nearly 90% of people want assisted dying reform for people who are terminally ill or intolerably suffering. Respect for choice and autonomy is what protects the most vulnerable amongst us. My Death, My Decision is calling for robust safeguards – if so many other countries can achieve this in a safe and legal manner, why can’t we?
It is time for change.
