A message from Bishop Terry…
The Meacher Bill on “Assisted Dying” is currently awaiting its second reading in the House of Lords.
The Department for Social Justice (DSJ) of the Bishops’ Conference is working with allied organisations to defeat this.
Alongside other efforts there is a DSJ Zoom webinar in collaboration with Living and Dying Well and the National Board of Catholic Women on Monday July 12 from 7.30pm to 9pm.
Baroness Ilora Finlay and Robert Preston, from Living and Dying Well, will be presenting themes from their book Death by Appointment: A Rational Guide to the Assisted Suicide Debate and there will be opening remarks from Bishop John Sherrington.
It is open to all.
