Lord Falconer attacks right to life for elderly and disabled people

16 May 2013

Lord Falconer is a former flatmate of Tony Blair

A new onslaught on disabled and vulnerable people has been launched with the introduction by Lord Falconer of a bill in the House of Lords to legalise assisted dying.

Lord Falconer's bill is expected to be targeted at the lonely, disabled and elderly. Previous attempts to undermine the right to life of elderly and disabled people have met with strong opposition in the House of Lords.

Paul Tully, SPUC Pro-Life’s general secretary, said: “We will be collaborating with disability rights groups, health professionals and pro-life politicians to resist Lord Falconer’s proposals with all our strength." [SPUC, 15 May]
