Euthanasia: we can live without it
When the answer to pain and suffering or to the inevitable effects of aging is to endorse and support suicide, something radical will have taken hold in our society.
A shocking case shows that assisted suicide is about more than alleviating suffering.

"In the current social context in which this debate is taking place, the case to change our current law has not been made."
Why is assisted suicide seen as compassionate when it’s for ill or disabled people?
We must oppose legalising euthanasia/assisted suicide for reasons of the terrible consequences that have come where laws have been passed.
I deeply oppose moves to open the legal door to ending the lives of disabled people. And not just for us, but because once a society changes in this way, it changes radically, for every citizen of Ireland.
