Assisted Dying for Terminally Ill Adults (Scotland) Bill

Published: 21st December 2021

CMF recognises the good intention behind this Bill namely, to protect citizens in Scotland from having to face a prolonged and painful death. However, we do not agree with the proposed solution - to legalise assisted dying. In our view, it cannot be right to attempt to solve issues around end-of-life care by assisting patients to kill themselves. We believe, with H L Menken, that 'there's always an easy solution to every human problem - neat, plausible and wrong.'
