We were interested to see an article on the Christian Institute website about MDMD, claiming that we “lobby for legal protections to be removed from vulnerable people”. Nothing could be further from the truth. MDMD is concerned that any right-to-die legislation should fully protect vulnerable people.
We suggest that the author read our proposals for extending advanced decisions which would allow assisted dying for those who wish it, but still provide vulnerable people with the same protection as they have today. This is much stronger protection for vulnerable people than previous proposals for right-to-die legislation and deserves to be seriously considered.
