Key question: Does the UK public support a change to the law on assisted dying?

Our view

The vast majority of people in the UK support an assisted dying law for terminally ill, mentally competent adults

In 2015 the largest poll ever conducted on the issue found that 82% support assisted dying. Support is consistently high regardless of age, gender or political persuasion.

There is small but vocal minority of people who oppose assisted dying.
