Key question: What are the problems with the current law on assisted dying?

Our view

The current law does not work.

Every ten days somebody from Britain travels to Dignitas to die. Every year over 300 dying people end their own lives at home. Around 1,000 people each year receive help to die, illegally, from a doctor at their request.

These is no regulation of these practices and no safeguards to protect people.
