Commons welcome of DPP assisted suicide policy undermines protection for vulnerable

28 March 2012

The House of Commons' welcome of the Director of Public Prosecutions' (DPP) policy on prosecuting assisted suicide undermines society’s protection of the most vulnerable.

Last night the House of Commons passed unopposed a motion to "welcome" the DPP's guidance, published in February 2010, as well as to encourage advances in palliative care.

SPUC Pro-Life has warned that the DPP's guidance effectively decriminalises assisted suicide by removing any realistic chance of prosecutions for assisting suicide. [SPUC, 28 March]
