Labour’s ‘assisted dying’ bill and its relevance to the hunting ban

Backbench Labour MP Rob Marris is offering Parliament its first vote on assisted dying since 1997.

The timing of this Bill’s arrival in the House of Commons is very useful for those of us who oppose the repeal of the Hunting Act (and who keep an eye on the social media).

Here’s why (from Twitter):


Perhaps this will clarify for MPs of all parties why the fox hunting ban must remain in place.

    By the raging silence from Westminster over the last 8 years with regards to enforced not assisted dying. Then if common law could be enacted by this process we already have assisted dying being promoted by the state.

    Whilst there are individual cases where helping someone to die might indeed be good, the problem is that this government would use it to kill, possibly murder, as many disabled people as it could.

    Yep assisted dying – the Liverpool Care Pathway or Institutionalised Homicide by state permitted euthanasia.

    Trust the state with a law like Assisted Suicide is jut plain crazy.

    The political class have been inciting hatred of the elderly, the disabled, the unemployed, the low income poor, anybody sick.

    Recall we were call ‘wasteful eaters’ by a certain German politician not so long ago.

    And they were individually gassed or locked up to starve to death.

    Oh is that sanctions on unemployed and low waged alike.

    The low waged called untermensch alongside the unemployed only worth being on workfare.

    Sieg Heil.
