British member of European Parliament favours assisted suicide

Member of the European Parliament Roger Helmer has written in favour of assisted suicide on grounds beyond those recommended by a recent report by a private commission, advocating the availability of the procedure for those not terminally ill.  He explicitly argues that the cost of supporting people with advanced dementia is one reason to accept the practice.

One thought on “British member of European Parliament favours assisted suicide”

  1. Although his argument is largely based on individual liberty, it is not clear whether or not he would insist that health care workers be obliged to assist, or that he recognizes the probability of conflicts of conscience among health care workers.
