Conor McGinn MP has voted against the Assisted Dying Bill in Parliament.
An overwhelming majority of 330 voted against and the Bill was defeated.
Commenting McGinn said:
“After much consideration I decided that to vote against the bill to legalise assisted dying in the UK. This is for a variety of concerns and reasons.хЪ
“The introduction of this assisted dying bill risked denigrating the role and position of disabled and vulnerable people in society, and could have ultimately have led to external pressure on those who are vulnerable in society to end their lives. Effectively by allowing people to choose to die, others could inadvertently be harmed.
“The Bill has also been widely opposed by medical professionals. The British Medical Association, Royal College of Surgeons and many independent groups of Doctors and individuals had all written to MPs urging to vote against the Bill.
“I believe there needs to be improved care for those with terminal illnesses, more support for their carers’ and improved facilities offering specialised care. High quality palliative care services should be widely available to those who need it, for many patients this would alleviate suffering and allay worries about the process of dying.”
