Pro-life group expresses concern at Gilderdale case London, 26 January - SPUC Pro-Life has expressed concern at the outcome of the case of Lynn Gilderdale whose mother was acquitted of helping to kill her daughter.
John Smeaton, SPUC Pro-Life national director, said: "The jury's verdict and the judge's comments appear to have disturbing implications for vulnerable, disabled and seriously ill people. Laws against assisted suicide are actually there to protect such vulnerable people. We shall be studying this sad and worrying case carefully with a view to doing all in our power to step up our educational and political campaign on the need to explain and maintain the current legislation in this area."
