DIGNITY in Dying believes that no one should be forced to suffer against their wishes at the end of their lives.
The Director of Public Prosecutions' consultation is open for four further weeks and the final policy is to be published in the spring. The document is available at www.cps.gov.uk/consultations/as_index.html .
While you are online, I would also encourage all supporters of greater choice at the end of life to sign the petition to Gordon Brown that 'We the undersigned, petition the Prime Minister to launch an independent commission to investigate the impact of an assisted dying for the terminally ill law and to guarantee enough parliamentary time to debate, and if necessary, act upon, the findings'.
This can be found at http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/Assisted-dying/.
