ASSISTED SUICIDE - URGENT APPEAL BY THE BISHOPS FOR YOUR HELP

The Bishops of England and Wales have asked us all to write in response to the Consultation Document issued by the Director of Public Prosecutions.


Visit the Bishops Conference webpage HERE for more information about why this is so important, or read the Diocese of Westminster commentary HERE.


You might wish to listen to Archbishop Peter Smith explaining the gravity of the situation:

As the Bishops' website is rather complicated, you can more easily download the form HERE
The questionnaire begins on page 7.  The answers are 'yes' or 'no' from drop-down menus, the Bishops offer advice on how to reply. 


When you have filled it in, either email it to:
assistedsuicide.consultation@cps.gsi.gov.uk


or post it to: 
Assisted Suicide Policy Team
Crown Prosecution Service Headquarters - 6th floor
50 Ludgate Hill
London
EC4M 7EX



Responses must be received by 16th December.


PLEASE ACT, DO NOT IGNORE THIS APPEAL.  THIS LEGISLATION THREATENS THE LIVES AND DIGNITY OF EVERY PERSON IN THIS COUNTRY.


Our Lady, help of Christians, pray for us.
