Are assisted suicide guidelines enough?
New guidance has been issued to clarify the law on assisted suicide in England and Wales. What is your reaction?
The new guidelines, published by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, set out a range of factors to be taken into account when deciding whether or not to prosecute.
The guidance is not about changing the law; assisted suicide is illegal and carries a jail term of up to 14 years.
