On September 11th 2015 (just after the next session of Parliament begins), an ‘Assisted Suicide Bill’ is scheduled for debate. Many Christians and pro life groups are deeply concerned that legalising assisted suicide will lead to terminally ill and severely disabled people being pressurised to end their lives. The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation encourages us all to see life as a gift from God and that we are not to take life away prematurely.

Please pray about this and contact your MP to express your views. If you leave it until the start of the next parliamentary session you may well miss the opportunity to be the salt and light that Jesus calls us to be.
