Follow through on your declared support for the idea that Assisted Dying should not be legalised.

I'm signing because Assisted Dying is basically a selfish act, which has consequences for all those who are left behind in terms of guilt and shame and regret. Yes, watching someone suffer agonies is horrible, especially when you want to help them, but there is palliative care which can alleviate the pain. I am not minimizing the dilemma faced by patients and their carers, but if this step were taken, it would lead to an injustice.
