E 155 Assisted Suicide: Drawing a Line in the Sand

The Director of Public Prosecutions is due to clarify the guidelines for prosecution of those accused of assisting suicide, though without changing current law. What are the key issues at stake?

This careful study looks at the principles of protection of life, protection of the vulnerable, the cohesion of society and respect for the individual. It makes a case for how these principles might be supported by people of any creed and none, how they might affect the DPP guidelines, and how they can be rooted in Christian tradition.
