Contextual Lecture: The Ethics of Assisted Dying
With Baroness Meacher
The vast majority of people (84%) and disabled people (86%) support the legalisation of assisted dying for terminally ill, mentally capacitous people who are suffering unbearably, given adequate safeguards. Baroness Meacher debates why some people oppose this type of reform.
Baroness Meacher is the Chair of Dignity in Dying and is a Crossbench Life peer who has sat under this title in the Lords since 2006.
