A private affair The law states that killing is a criminal act, and so is aiding and abetting people who kill themselves. Yet in cases of “assisted suicide” or “mercy killing”, those guilty of criminal behaviour are often not prosecuted or, if successfully tried, they escape with a light penalty, such as probation or a suspended jail sentence.
Supporting us financially, in any way you can, will help us to improve end of life choices and enable us to support people (regardless of their circumstances) to make sure their rights at that time are fully respected. Every contribution is a step in the right direction towards greater choice
Friends at the End is a Scottish Charity promoting knowledge and understanding of end of life choices and campaigning to change the law to allow Assisted Dying in the UK.
