Thousands sign new petition calling for assisted suicide bill

The My Life, My Death, My Choice campaign will today present a petition signed by 2,500 people urging MSPs to pass the Assisted Suicide Bill, conceived by late independent MSP Margo MacDonald. She died in April following a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Green co-convener Patrick Harvie has pledged to take the bill forward, with the support of Conservative MSP Jackson Carlaw, Labour MSP Mary Fee and SNP MSP Bill Kidd.

The petition presentation comes just before a deadline on Friday for submissions to a health and sport committee consultation on the bill, reports The Scotsman
